Top local history technician [Howmuch?] has been working on this beauty for a while now. It’s an ‘Inclosure’ map of Walsall Wood, dating from, I believe, 1876. This will be of interest, no doubt, to the Walsall Wood Wallahs like Davids Evans and Oakley, but also to people from Shelfield, Brownhills and High Heath. It’s not an accurate map geographically – it was made and used for legal purposes only, and shows property ownership. It’s a thing of great beauty and interest, and many of the names contained within it will be familiar to readers here. I featured a fragment of it a few weeks ago in the post ‘Where the Streets have a name‘. An awful lot of personal effort has been put in by [Howmuch?] into cleaning and presenting this map. He’s every bit the star and this blog would be a shambles without him.
Cheers old chap.
