NEWS (November 2011): Black Country Living Museum

Black Country Living Museum

The next meeting of the Society takes place on Thursday 10th November at 7:30 pm in St. Andrew’s Church, Bilston Street, Sedgley. Friends of the BCLM are telling the story of the Museum from the 1978 opening to the latest project – the 1930s Old Birmingham Road.

This illustrated history of the site will jog the memories of past visitors and encourage them to return. Also the evening provides an opportunity for potential visitors to see how the 26 acres of derelict industrial land have been turned into Britain’s friendliest open air museum.

As usual visitors are invited to come along – admission £1. Annual membership of the Society costs £5 and gives free access to the programme of talks.

Some of the BCLM buildings originally stood in Sedgley Manor – the Littleworth tollhouse, Brook Street back-to-back houses, Pitt’s cottage, the tilted cottage and the Conway garage (replica). Take up the challenge to search for them here.
