The information on this site is taken from notes and talks given by Stuart Williams who is responsible for the excellent Bloxwich Telegraph, from research conducted at the Walsall Local History Centre and by Catcher Media. It is in no way presented as complete or entire in it’s information but is intended as a collection of the findings and the key themes that were explored as part of this project. We mean no disrespect to the many people, places and stories of Bloxwich that have not been covered.
