Hi again Tony.

I am glad Bob mentioned the thread again regarding the “Tunnel” as this name persisted in coming back to me ,so I got intouch with an old friend that worked and lived close to Dean’s Road in the 1950’s.

He told me the locals used the Old “Manly Arms” on the corner of Wolverhampton Road and Deans Road, and would you believe it the nickname of the pub was The Tunnell.

I suppose this was due to the Grand Junction Railway tunnell that went beneath the road at the side of it.

And of course Holy Trinity Church is a stones throw away .

Below the old cellar head.
