Wolverhampton's Listed Buildings

7 & 8 Summerfield Road

Listing: pair of houses. c.1840

Awards: Wolverhampton Environmental Awards, 2000, prox.acc.

Comment: this pair, still looking neatly Regency, was built before West Park (nearby) was thought of. It would have been within easy walking distance of the town centre and in the fashionable Tettenhall direction. But it would also have been near the race course, which might have attracted some and have been seen as undesirable by others. Similarly, these days it might be thought to be too near the brewery - or not, depending on your interests.

The Environmental Award was for restoration and extension work, for which the architect was Eric Hudson, who also did the Snow Hill scheme.
