Wolverhampton's Locally Listed Buildings

2 Mount Pleasant 



Listing: Locally listed in 2004. Built in the late 18th century, this three storey, red brick terrace property has a plain tile roof with surviving external cornice.  There is a ground floor bay window on which a first floor bay window has been added at some stage.  Originally a private town house, the ground floor is now a take-away, with residential accommodation on the upper floors.  Group value with adjacent listed buildings.

Comment:  The building is the middle one in the photo above, which shows its group value.  But for local listing purposes this house should also qualify in its own right.  This building and its group is part of the historic core of Bilston; it is an important part of the view from around St. Leonard's church; and it lies at the start of a road full of buildings of historic (and architectural) interest.
