Details of historic buildings, structures and archaeological sites in Wolverhampton and Walsall have now become available online for the first time. They can be searched using Heritage Gateway, a national resource which also holds similar information from around the country. The data gives descriptions of more than 3,000 features and includes the ability to see each one in Google Maps.
So, for example, to find all the canal bridges in Wolverhampton (there were 76 when I looked), go to the ‘County/District/Parish’ tab in ‘advanced find’ and choose ‘City of Wolverhampton’ (see image – you can also choose ‘Walsall’). Now click on the tab labelled ‘What’, enter ‘canal bridge’ and hit ‘search’. You might find some history on your doorstep you didn’t know was there!
