For the old photo feature this week, I thought we’d take a stroll up to Walsall Wood. Still villagey, with some surprisingly beautiful buildings and quiet residental streets, the former mining community is a little hidden gem in the Northern Wastes. Worth exploring when you have a free afternoon. The older images are all taken from the excellent work by Jan Farrow, ‘Brownhills and Walsall Wood on old picture postcards’. As ever, if you can find a copy, do buy one.
