Sir Richard Pype was Lord Mayor of London in 20 Elizabeth, from whom is descended Samuel Pype, now owner of a capital messuage &c in this town...This old mansion is still, or was lately, visible in the remains of a half-timbered house, situated at the extremity of the town towards Wolverhampton. (Shaw)

Gatehouse Comments

Site of Manor House reportedly "large half-timbered structure of unusual strength" connected with the Pype family from the time of Edward I or earlier. Was replaced, either on the site or very close by, in C18 by a mansion which eventual was turned into a commercial hotel, pub and latterly a night club but is now disused. The area has been heavily developed, with a railway cutting through the west of the site but some archaeology may remain under the car park north of the listed house.
