New housing in Sandringham Road, Penn, Wolverhampton
New housing in Sandringham Road, Penn, Wolverhampton
These new apartments at the junction with Birchwood Road were built in 2011 on the site of the former Battle of Britain public house. The solar panels were installed in 2012. Sadly, the two red flowering hawthorn trees have succumbed to disease or old age and been cut down. They were looking very sick in July this year, but it is strange that three trees in the street should die at the same time. There at still a couple left in Westminster Avenue. They may have been planted in the 1930s when housing began to spread up here.
