Wolverhampton's Locally Listed Buildings

The Vicarage

Manlove Street

Listing:  Inter-war vicarage to St. Chad's church.  Third building in this complex.  See also Church of St. Chad, Owen Road.  Group value as well as social history and architectural interest. Locally Listed, approved November 2001.

Comment:  The building stands out like a sore thumb in a network of small streets of terraced artisans dwellings.  Clearly the vicar was not expected to live like his parishioners but more like the lord of the manor.  The style of the building bears no relationship at all to the church and parish hall which it stands next to.
