Some history of the Carpenters' Arms
The Carpenters' Arms was originally at No.46 Brewery Street but this thoroughfare was later absorbed by Adams Street. The tavern was at the southern - or Heneage Street end of the street.
Richard Lyon was the host of the Carpenters' Arms in the early 1870s. He kept the beer house with his wife Hannah.
More information on the Carpenters' Arms in Adams Street to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to the Carpenters' Arms from another page. When building the site it is easier to place links as they crop up rather than go back later on. I realise this is frustrating if you were specifically looking for information on the Carpenters' Arms. There is information on Birmingham dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.
