Wolverhampton's Locally Listed Buildings

Former Seven Stars public house

22 High Street, Bilston


Listing: Locally listed in 2004. Former Seven Stars public house.  Built 1934, mock timber frame and corner lantern feature.  Range of earlier buildings to the rear may be associated with earlier public house/farm on same site.  Landmark building.

Comment: Now (2004) in a sad state, this building sticks out like a very sore thumb in Bilston High Street, which has been the subject of pedestrianisation and much upgrading and environmental work.  It is well worth preserving, not only for its own landmark quality but also because it makes a curious contrast with the Greyhound and Punchbowl, just a little further down the street, which is a genuine, original, half timbered building.
