Victorian villagers

1st December 1995 at 00:00
The Black Country Museum in Dudley, West Midlands, recreates village life as it was when thousands of furnaces made the area "black by day and red by night". The "village" contains a Baptist chapel, Victorian schoolroom, public house, shops, houses and workshops taken from their original sites and furnished with authentic artefacts from the kettle on the hob to the furnace in Anchor Forge. Visitors can ride on a tram, take a canal boat trip into the famous limestone tunnel, and explore the mining display. Parties of 20 or more are offered the free services of a guide. For a group visit brochure tel: 0121 520 8054.
