Some history of the King's Head Inn on Allison Street at Digbeth in Birmingham in the County of Warwickshire
More information on the King's Head Inn on Allison Street to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to the King's Head 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 King's Head Inn. There is information on Birmingham dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.
In 1841 Mary Tunstall was running the King's Head Inn along with her daughters Elizabeth and Mary. Next door was the butcher William Wildgoose.
This is an extract from a plan dated 1875 that was drawn up for the Gooch Estate, a large landowner in this part of Birmingham. The Bricklayers' Arms can be seen on the north corner of Allison Street and Coventry Street. The King's Head Inn was a short distance away on the opposite side of Allison Street.
