This is just a quick question for the history wonks out there who have some knowledge of Pelsall.
I’ve been asked by someone who’s due to give a talk to local schoolchildren where the name ‘Mouse Hill’ comes from. That’s a jolly good question, and I have no idea.
Mouse Hill is a fairly sharp hill, and was once the beating heat of industrial Pelsall, as it’s where the Pelsall Hall Colliery stood for many years. But how did this curious name come to pass?
