Some history of the Adderley Park Inn
The Adderley Park Inn is located on the corner of Adderley Road and Ash Road.
More information on the Adderley Park Inn on Adderley Road to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to the Adderley Park Inn 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 Adderley Park Inn. In the meantime I have included a few photographs of the public-house along with a newspaper article. There is information on Birmingham dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.

As this sign states, the Adderley Park Inn is "better known as The Three A's,", most probably a reference to Atkinson's Aston Ales. The Adderley family owned an extensive tract of land around this part of Birmingham. Charles Adderley, who would later become the first Lord Norton, owned much of Duddeston and Vauxhall. It was here that he donated the land for Birmingham's first public park in August 1856 - hence the name of this pub. The ancestral home of the Adderley family was Hams Hall near Coleshill. The first Charles Adderley, an equerry to King Charles I, bought the original hall. Following a major fire in 1890, the hall was demolished and rebuilt in the village of Coates in Gloucestershire at the whim of the shipping magnate, Oswald Harrison. Charles Adderley opened the ten-acre park to thousands of visitors on a warm Saturday in August 1856. Entrance to the park was via a handsome lodge where a library was later added. The opening ceremony included a procession from the Market Hall at Prospect Row, along Ashted Row and through Bloomsbury to the Saltley Road.
