Black Country Day

Black Country Day
Celebrated 14th July.

The Black Country is an area of the West Midlands in England, north and west of Birmingham.

From as early as 1785 the road stretching between Birmingham and Wolverhampton was described as one continuous town. It is commonly believed that the term Black Country came from the pollution caused by the heavy industries in the area, which would cover the area in soot.

However it has been suggested that the name existed before due to a large coal deposit under parts of South Staffordshire and North Worcestershire. These deposits hence determined the location of industrial settlements, and from these it can be deduced that the natural coal deposits defined the original boundary of The Black Country.
