The Black Country Vol. 1 West Midlands skate exploration

Dudley, Sandwell, Wallsall and Wolverhampton - skate spot gold

The Black Country Vol. 1 West Midlands skate exploration

Here’s part of an ongoing series exploring the skateable terrain of The Black Country from Wolftown Skateboards.
For those in the dark, The Black Country is a region of the West Midlands in England, and commonly refers to all or part of the four Metropolitan Boroughs of Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall and Wolverhampton. The 14-mile road between Wolverhampton and Birmingham was described as “one continuous town” in 1785. The name is believed to come from the soot from the heavy industries that covered the area, although the 30-foot-thick (10 metre) coal seam close to the surface is another possible origin.

Filmed throughout The Black Country and its surrounding areas, this volume includes skating from: Henry Fox, Anthony Ackers, Alex Ramsell, Ciaran Denison, Sean Baker, Rajinder Sami, Callum Sidlauskas, Luke McManus, Ali Watson, James Denning and Aid Jobson.
