WALSALL MB HIGH,STREET (north side) SP 01 98 SE 16/47 Green Dragon Inn 13.09.82 GV II

Public house. Said to be c1773 with bay window added between 1783 and 1817, incorporating part of earlier guildhall, and now being converted into shops (September 1985). Stuccoed brick. Three storeys. Facade has three-storey canted bay window, with moulded cornice and bands between floors, C20 metal casements-with glazing bars, and parapet stepped up in centre. Doorcase to right. Interior: on the first floor the brickwork of the east wall is exposed and shows a break in the brickwork where the late C18 front was added. There are also fragments of a timber-frame embedded in the wall: some studs and a small section of a rail. Three ceiling beams with mouldings of C16 type are re-used and are not related to the wall-framing. The second floor was not fully accessible, but the roof is said by the VCH to contain timbers re-used from a C15 or C16 timber-framed building. (VCH, Staffs, Vol VII, p 218).
