a network for understanding yesterday's landscape today
The Distinctly Black Country network aims to link people who are interested in the way the past has created the modern Black Country landscape. We also aim to describe the distinguishing features of it, and to encourage contact with the things that make it special and different. What is the Black Country? The Black Country is a large urban area in the English West Midlands about 200 kilometres North West of London. Depending on which version of history you prefer, it takes its name either from the soil which was made dark by outcropping coal or from the thick pollution created by thousands of chimneys and hearths which sprang up during the area’s industrialisation.
