William Fowler is revered by all who have family or ties with Kingswinford. His 1822 and 1839/40 maps are legendary and the author Eric Richardson said that to browse over Fowler's enormous map is to allow oneself to drift into another long-gone world. Richardson also investigates who William Fowler was and what we know about him as a local man? This book presents Fowler's documented maps with notations featuring 'A journey through the ancient Parish of Kingswinford', 'Over the hill to Brockmoor', 'Brierley Hill', 'The Delph & Quarry Bank', Bretell Lane & Audnam' and 'Wordsley in 1882'.
