Some history of The Stork
Originally listed in New Town Row, the Stork Inn was later included in listings for High Street Aston. The building was located on the western side of the High Street, on the northern corner of Asylum Road.
I would imagine that the pub dates from the mid-1850s as the land at the junction of what was known as Walmer Road and Bread Lane and the junction of Asylum Road was auctioned in April 1854.
