    The Aston tavern was built in 1904, in the shadow of the Aston Villa ground. Today it sits almost hidden behind billboars and vegetation. Inside had remained very unchanged until closure, complete with ornate tilework, acid etched windows and bench seating. Sadly pikeys have attempted to steal the tilework (badly) and most of the acid etched and stained glass is now cracked or smashed.

    Acid etched glass... which at one time was compulsary in pubs to prevent 'temptation' of the anti temperence delights inside , now cracked from the heat of a small fire.
