Scott Arms

The Scott Arms has always played an important part in the life of Great Barr.

 

The Scott Arms public house acted as a court and market for the area - the original public house was demolished in the 1960's and a new shopping centre developed.

The Scott Arms acts as a bus terminus. Originally marking the boundary of Birmingham the buses turned in Walsall Road to return their journeys. This is marked by the remains of a 'Bundy' clock which recorded the times of buses leaving. The base remains but the clock mechanism has gone. The letters BCT indicating Birmingham City Transport.
