West of here – welcome to WyrleyBlog

Local historian, researcher and author Clive Roberts has been in touch to alert me of a new blog on the scene. I’d spotted it a few times in my site stats, but not had chance to check it out. It’s actually rather wonderful.

Whoever is curating it is doing a fine job, and really knows their local history onions. The blog is ostensibly about Great Wyrley – hence the name WyrleyBlog – but the coverage is much, much wider than that.

Historians into local mining history and the Harrison empire will find stuff of interest, as will Cannock, Bloxwich and Walsall folk.

I believe it might be the same chap who contributed so wonderfully to this article from last year about Birchills.

Thanks to Clive for pointing this up, and best wishes to WyrleyBlog for the future – always a pleasure to see more history coming to the fore – especially history as well written, researched and presented as this.

Go on, go check it out.
