The website of the
Black Country Society
Established in 1967 to Support, Record, Preserve and Celebrate the distinct
Character and Nature of the West Midlands area known since the mid nineteenth century as 'The Black Country'
The main resources produced by the Society for the study of the Black Country are the books that it has published, which can be found at the Society shop, and the past issues of the Blackcountryman. This page brings together a number of other resources for the study of the area.
The first of these is the Image Bank which contains a large number of images of the Black Country through the years. These can be freely used by members of the Society under license.
The Society also hosts a number of collections of material of different sorts - the Black Country photographs of , Graham Beckley and Terry Hyde; a page describing the Black Country dialect and a page of miscellaneous resources.
