Listing: Public house, probably c1800 with alterations of 1830s. A
good example of a canal side public house retaining adjacent brewhouse.
Brewhouse: early C19. A rare survival of a brewhouse next to a public
Comment: The pub stands on the Wyrley and Essington Canal, which
was opened in 1794. The present buildings may have been built because of the
canal. But there may have been a pub or some other building on the site
before then, as this building stands on an old road in the centre of
Wednesfield. The brewhouse is the building on the left side of the photo
above. The canal bridge is just behind the brewhouse and St. Thomas's is just
to the right of the photo. This is one of the little pockets in
Wednesfield that retains some historic character.
