Brave Dudley Boys


15-hawthornAlthough our song is from an earlier time than that revived at Black Country Living Museum in Dudley, it’s a place well worth visiting and the photos give a hint of the life of ordinary folk who deserve to be remembered. “Covering 26 acres of former industrial land, Black Country Living Museum is uniquely placed to tell the story of the creation of the world’s first industrial landscape. Over fifty authentic shops, houses and workshops have been carefully reconstructed to preserve the character of the region when its manufacturers brought worldwide fame to Black Country Towns. Take a trip on the tram to explore the canal-side village, where you can meet and chat to the costumed characters. Explore the underground mine and experience the authentic sights, sounds, smells and tastes from the past.”
