About Brownhills

Brownhills is a small town Located on the edge of Cannock Chase near the large artificial lake Chasewater, it is 9.7 km north-east of Walsall and a similar distance south-west of Lichfield. It is now part of the Metropolitan Borough of Walsall but before the boundary changes in 1974, it was in the county of Staffordshire.

The town lies on the ancient Watling Street, but is not recorded before the 17th century, although Ogley Hay, which in modern times is a district of the town, is recorded as a settlement in the Domesday Book. Brownhills quickly grew around the coal mining industry, especially after it became linked to the canal and railway networks in the mid-19th century, and by the end of the century had grown from a hamlet of only 300 inhabitants to a town with a population of over 13,000.

Today Brownhills has a traditional high street and provides housing in all styles and for every budget and there are a number of new residential developments in Clayhanger, Shire Oak and Shire Ridge which offer easy access to the Motorway Network with the M6 Toll, M6 and M54 motorways being a short drive away. There are regional and national rail services from Lichfield. The stunning leisure centre in Walsall Wood is just the latest in a long line of recent investments in the area.

The iconic sculpture by John McKenna of the Brownhills Miner, as it is known, is nicknamed Jigger after miner Jack 'Jigger' Taylor who died when the roof of Walsall Wood pit collapsed in 1951
