We are indebted to Peter Barnsley for his generous permission to reproduce this selection, taken from the many articles about Cradley penned by him over the last fifty years




Peter Barnsley is a prolific local historian whose extensive research into Cradley has led to a great many informative and sometimes amusing articles on the people and their lives and times. The Editor of "The Blackcountryman" is aware of our publication of articles that first appeared in that journal, and we would recommend membership of the Black Country Society to anyone interested in the area.


Peter has published three compilations of photographs: "Cradley, Impressions from Old Photographs" (1992), "A Cradley Album" (1994) and Cradley: Looking Back (2003).
