I have been contacted today by a reader who’s been studying local directories for details of people and businesses of old Brownhills. They have come upon two public houses recorded which neither of us have ever heard mentioned anywhere else. The first is The Royal Oak, in Green Lane, Walsall Wood, the second being The Coach and Horses, just specified as ‘Brownhills’.
It’s possible, of course, that these houses underwent title changes and became pub names we are more familiar with today, but it seems unlikely. If you have anything to add, please comment here of mail me at BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com. Cheers for your help.
