Don’t forget – chance to catch a local legend this Wednesday!


This is sure to be a wonderful event!

Your second chance to catch a Walsall Wood legend in action – not to be missed.

Just a quick headsup to those interested in Walsall Wood history and who are free on the Wednesday afternoon of 11th January 2017 – there’s a talk featuring the Brownhills Blog’s favourite Wood Mon™ and top contributor, the young David Evans.

Following the success of David’s recent talk at The Well on Walsall Wood which over 40 people attended, David has been learning powerpoint, furiously making slides and perusing the Les Dawson big book of bad puns for inspiration.

David is without doubt the most knowledgable historian on Walsall Wood matters and the chance to hear him speak on the matter is not to be missed – the talk starts at 2:30pm, and costs just £2.50 (including refreshments) – pre-booking is essential, as places are limited.

I wish David well – I thoroughly applaud David’s community spirit and hard work in putting on these talks. The more people who may be inspired to explore their and our collective heritage the better!

You can find out more by emailing or by calling the on 01922 655572 – of course, you can just pop in to the library on the corner of High Street and Walsall Wood.

  2. That was an illuminating talk (well it was a magic lantern show!)

    Interesting how the growth of the town and the schools were interlinked and also how they were affected by the World Wars.

    There were some sad tales of children’s education being restricted by family circumstances and lack of money.

    Thanks to David and the Library staff.

    As a PS. The Library were pleased with the additional foot-fall and book lending. The more popular the place is the more likely it is that it will be there for future talks….
