History

Stevens Park in Stourbridge has housed families for many years. Dating back to 1282 when the hamlet of Wlfrecote was home to two families.

Wollescote Hall is a grade II listed building was given to the people of Lye and Wollescote by Ernest Stevens in 1930 and has restrictions to use under its Deed of Gift.

The hall was to benefit the community with the provision that there would be no discussions of politics, drinking of alcohol and ball games on Sundays.

The hall was rented out to Worcester Education Department as an annexe to Folley College Art Department in 1971 but the building fell into disrepair soon after the college left the building. In 1991 renovation work commenced and it is now occupied by the Lye/Wollescote Sons of Rest and part of the Social Services Department of Dudley Council.
