Wolverhampton's Locally Listed Buildings

The Stile

Harrow Street

Listing:  Rare survivor of a mid-Victorian public house of the 1860s.  Contains many original internal features, including subdivisions into a snug, smoke room and bar survive.  Exterior largely in tact with some good etched glass panels.  To the rear is an L-shaped bowling green and a rare surviving stable block. Locally Listed, approved November 2001.

Comment:  A very important example of a local pub.  Bowls (of the crown green variety) has always been a very strongly supported game in Wolverhampton and a number of pub bowling greens survive.  The one here is sometime felt by visiting teams to give the home team something of an advantage, they being somewhat more used to playing round the corner of the pub, on two sides of which the rink lies.
