yes the title is a bit of an odd one. Effectively because the making of Iron in this region Covers South Staffordshire, some of Worcestershire , Black Country (Dudley, Walsall, Sandwell and Wolverhampton) City of Birmingham and what is described as as mid severn valley ( based around the railway Kidderminster to Bridgnorth)
