Netherton, Dudley

Netherton is an area of the Dudley Metropolitan Borough around 1.5 miles south of Dudley town, in the West Midlands of England. Despite the growth of neighbouring urban centres in the Black Country in the 20th century, Netherton remains a distinct locality, bordered by nature reserves to the east and west, and an industrial area and the Dudley Southern By-Pass in the north. The southern border, which is also the boundary with the Sandwell Metropolitan Borough, is formed by the Mousesweet Brook.
