Bratch locks wombourne

The Bratch in Wombourne. Date unknown.

A parade by the British Legion and Band to observe King George Vs. Silver Jubilee on May 6th. 1935 is making its way down Windmill Bank. To the right are houses where the Maypole now stands and on the left is the boundary wall of the Police Constable’s house in Planks Lane.

The Vine Inn, High St. It was originally a private house which dates back to the early 1700s.It became an Inn in 1851. Photo around 1910. More info, a little bit of interest- the buildings at the side (where the car park is now) was where Guardian Safes started by Joe Timms who later moved to the top of Planks Lane

The ‘old’ Old Bush, High St., demolished in approx 1936, photo curtesy of Rob Walker-shame they couldn’t have kept it & refurbished it as the Manor House where the cricket clubhouse is now, what an amazing clubhouse that would have made
