Wolverhampton's Listed Buildings

Old Fallings Hall

Old Fallings Lane, Bushbury

Thanks to the School for permission to enter and photograph.

Listing: Grade II*. House, now part of school. Early C18, possibly earlier wing, rebuilt 1840s. Attributed to F. Smith of Warwick; for Sir William Gough. Early Georgian style. A good example of an early C18 house, one of several in the borough, with many surviving interior features.

Literature: Alex Chatwin's Bushbury Parish and People

Comment: Now part of Our Lady and St.Chad Roman Catholic School. It is worth remembering that Bushbury contained many Catholic families, even when it was dangerous to do so!

Possibly this house gets its star, when most of the others in the City do not, is because it is a bit fancier, being tricked out with stonework, and may be by Smith of Warwick.
