Building a sense of place
The Black Country Local Heritage Lists record and celebrate the historic places and spaces which give the Boroughs of Dudley, Sandwell and Walsall and the City of Wolverhampton their distinctive character. It helps protect what is special about our local heritage for existing and future generations.
There are over 1,000 entries already on the Local List – covering buildings, structures, archaeological sites and historic parks – all of which have been identified as being ‘special’ to the Black Country. These places enrich and enliven our understanding of the past, and because of this, they are used to help make decisions as part of the planning process.
What’s so special?
The Local Heritage List is a valuable resource for anyone interested in the historic environment of the Black Country, whether you are an owner, developer, decision maker or member of the public.
