Black Country Museum 7/7

Needless to say we all ended up at the Bottle and Glass Inn where we had a drink, finished off our Fish and Chips and enjoyed an impromptu celebration cake on the occasions of Chris’s (Tiffs) birthday. The Inn originally stood on Brierley Hill Road, Brockmore, backing onto the canal at the Stourbridge Flight of 16 locks. It was probably built shortly after the canal was cut. A map of 1822 shows the Bush public house but by the 1840’s it was known as the Bottle and Glass. The pub was built with two large rooms fronting the street. The back room was a later addition and the join between the two phases of construction can clearly be seen.

Interesting stuff, Brian, but this building probably didn't make it through to the finals in the Architecture Competition that year, heh!
Brian Walbey: Pubs were more functional in those days I think Ray.

Moin's a point of moild!
this calls for sepia to me
I bet all the Americans, and some others are wondering what a cob is......
Brian Walbey: I wondered the same when we moved to the Midlands to be honest, and being an awkward Southerner I refuse to ask for anything other than a filled roll!!
Thanks for bringing back the meories Brian.
Brian Walbey: A pleasure Richard.
Looks as though it has changed little since the 18th century!
Brian Walbey: I doubt it has Tom, even after being moved.

I remember this from my own visit several years ago and I have a very similar photo. I'm so pleased that these fine buildings have been preserved in this way.
A fine way to end your very nice series Brian.
Looks very much like my type of pub Brian, welcome back!
A very interesting building! And yes, this American is wondering what a cob is...
Brian Walbey: I also wondered what a cob is when we moved to the English Midlands from further South. It is the name for a filled bread roll from a bakers shop or cafe, but me being me, and there are a lot of "strange" words used for things round my way, I continue to ask for a roll wherever I go, just as I was brought up to do from where I come from originally.
What a fine scene, Brian. Most inviting.
