Blakenall Heath, Walsall

Blakenall Heath is a neighbourhood in Walsall, West Midlands, England. It straddles the border of Walsall and neighbouring town Bloxwich. It was originally a rural area north of Walsall, but the face of the area changed dramatically between 1918 and 1939. Farmland gave way to council housing, which surrounded the local church and a few pre-1914 buildings, and further developments took place in the thirty years following the end of the Second World War.
