Walsall - A Few Brief Notes
Walsall is situated in the West Midlands area known as the Black Country. Stafford and Cannock Chase lie to the North, with Sutton Coldfield, West Bromwich, Wolverhampton and Birmingham nearby.
Walsall has a fine industrial legacy of brass and iron founding, manufacturing electronics, hardware and more famously, leather goods.
A royal manor status was created by Henry II and Walsall's history is long and varied. The town now has a relatively new look with the Saddlers Centre which leads to the railway station, an award-winning bus station, new art gallery, an excellent arboretum and illuminations often rated higher than those of Blackpool.
Jerome K. Jerome, author of 'Three Men in a Boat' was born in the town, and a museum dedicated to Jerome is free to visit.
Walsall's remaining brewery is Highgate and Walsall, which survived closure by Mitchells & Butlers, following a management buyout. Many real ales are now brewed at the impressive brewery.

The branch has regular meetings, as can be seen by the diary list on the home page. Annual beer festivals are a popular form of campaigning and are visited by people from across the West Midlands and further afield.
Branch Contacts and Committee ListWe intend to give a full list of the committee when we receive the details.
In the meantime, keep an eye open for our branch newsletter, Kils and Kins.
