Wednesbury is part of Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council, located in the West Midlands. It is near the source of the River Tame, a river which is one of the most important tributaries to the River Trent. It is a small but thriving town, with a population of over 35,000 people. Due to its location on the motorway, Wednesbury is an ideal place for commuters to live, as they can travel to various parts of the UK quickly and easily via the motorway links.
has been suggested that Wednesbury has both a pre-medieval as well as a medieval history. There is the possibility that an Iron Age hillfort was discovered in Wednesbury. In 1004, the town was known as ‘Wodensbyri.’ Before this – during the Anglo-Saxon period – 2 battles in particular were well-known to have taken part in the area. The first took place in 592, rather savagely known as the ‘great slaughter’ and in 715 a battle which is when ‘Cearlin was driven out’ was also recorded to have taken place in Wednesbury.
1086 (when the Domesday book came out), the town had become known as ‘Wadnesberie’ and was known to be a thriving rural community. During the early 14th century, the town’s level of employment grew as coal pits and nail making attracted workers to the area.
As with Stoke-On-Trent, Wednesbury was also known for its pottery and the unique brand known as ‘Wedgbury Ware’ was particularly successful – growing in reputation and this form of pottery still being sold today! Pottery was popular in Wednesbury within the 17th century.

More about Wednesbury History
As the years turned and the 17th became the 18th century, Wednesbury continued its coal mining and nail making traditions, helping it to retain its description as a thriving place for industry. This was helped by the introduction of the first turnpike road (in 1727) and the development of the canals attracted more and more workers to the area. As a result, Wednesbury’s population grew dramatically.
By 1769, the canal banks had become full of factories, and the town was to enjoy growing for another 150 years or so. However, about half way through the first world war (in 1916), Wednesbury was hit by German Zeppelins. After the war, in 1920, the first council houses were built in Wednesbury.
In more recent years (around 1990), Wednesbury has had a light industrial estate built, as well as a retail park. Its look has been transformed by these additions, as well as a pedestrian only street (union street). However, one of Wednesbury’s historical attractions that has been retained, is the market which can still be attended today.
As well as visiting the market, visitors to Wednesbury can enjoy a range of attractions, both indoors and outdoors. Aerial Force enjoy hearing the stories from the citizens of Wednesbury, doing so whilst installing or repairing satellites and aerials as required – keeping their levels of indoor entertainment high.
When exploring the town, residents and visitors enjoy attending the Wednesbury market, which takes place on a Tuesday, Friday and Saturday. Furthermore, the Wednesbury museum and art gallery often holds a range of fascinating collections including Victorian art and Ruskin pottery.
The ‘Church of St Bartholomew’ is another attraction to the town that visitors and residents enjoy, and either take part in a service, or explore the grounds.
Another attraction which is situated relatively close to Wednesbury, is the ‘Black Country Museum’ which is attended by a huge volume of people throughout the year. The museum is particularly popular with children and schools across England, and gives a unique and interesting look at the area’s past. Also close by is ‘Dudley Zoo,’ a place that attracts animal enthusiasts from across the nation.
For other forms of entertainment, visitors can attend the ‘Boulder Central Indoor Climbing’ and the ‘Walsall Leather Museum’ which can be found nearby – as can the ‘Bilston Craft Gallery.’ If pubs and restaurants are your thing, the ‘Prince of Wales’ are a good place to enjoy a pint, and many people go straight from there to ‘Gala Bingo Wednesbury!
