Looking for Local Electricians in Dudley?

Dudley sits at the heart of the Black Country in the West Midlands. The town’s credited with giving birth to the industrial revolution, which altered the region immeasurably, and changed its fortunes. From the Victorian period right through to the 1960s, industry drove the economics of the area. Over the past 50 years, though, it’s been forced to change its focus, and character.

21st century Dudley is home to the Black Country Museum, which celebrates a way of life that has now mostly disappeared, and Dudley Zoo, incorporating a castle and caverns, which has been a major attraction for families since it opened in 1937. It’s recently undergone a huge regeneration project and now places its focus on conservation of endangered species.

Looking for Local Electricians in Stourbridge?

Stourbridge sits just 13 miles west of Birmingham, right on the edge of ‘the Black Country’. This term is still used extensively by Brummies, but can be bewildering to people living outside the region. It was first used in the 1840s to describe the industrial heartland of the industrial region. The ‘Black country’ is popularly thought to refer to the layer of soot deposited on homes and factories by the intensive industry in the area.

Contemporary Stourbridge couldn’t be further from the images of 19th century ‘dark Satanic mills’! It sits just north of the beautiful Clent hills and is known for the unique ‘rock houses’ at Kinver Edge. It still celebrates its heritage as a glass making centre, but today its businesses reflect the preoccupations of the 21st century. It’s a great base for establishing a business, due to its proximity to the motorway network – and it’s just a 40 minute drive to Birmingham city centre.
