Tunstall Arms on the front of
the Queen Victoria Buildings
Tunstall Public Library, formerly Victoria Institute, and public
baths - opened 1889
In Tunstall we have the
magnificent Victoria Institute.
Built in 1889 by the prolific A. R.
Wood, whose practice was based on Butterfield Place in the town, the
Victoria Institute forms part of what is left of the Jubilee
Buildings (which included a free library, art and science schools,
Public Baths on Greengate Street, and also a Fire Station that was
closed in 1926): a fine example of Victorian-era provision of
municipal facilities, and one from which modern local authorities
could learn great lessons from.
