To traditionalists the Black Country is the area where the coal seam comes to the surface - so West Bromwich, Oldbury, Blackheath, Cradley Heath, Old Hill, Bilston, Dudley, Tipton, Wednesfield and parts of Halesowen, Wednesbury and Walsall but not Wolverhampton, Stourbridge and Smethwick or what used to be known as Warley.

The region was described as 'Black by day and red by night' by Elihu Burritt, the American Consul to Birmingham in 1862.

Other authors, from Charles Dickens to William Shenstone refer to the intensity of manufacturing in the Black Country and its effect on the landscape and its people.

Today the Black Country is described, by the government, as most of the four Metropolitan District Council areas of Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall and Wolverhampton.i am 25 and am proud to be from Cradley Heath, when at uni in Truro Cornwall i was constently correcting locals that i was not a brummie, and once again the pull of the black country has me grounded and the Black Country accent is still going strong I really know as i work in Netherton at the Public Hall Where’s the Black Country By E.

Whenever I tell them that there is a huge difference between Birmingham and the Black Country they just think I am making some kind of racist comment!!
