Stourbridge Canal completed 1779, just before the eve of the railways for the transportation of raw materials and goods created by the Industrial Revolution.

Gulliver’s Travels . Jonathan Swift . 1726

This is The Nail House.

All along the canal were many nail manufacturers in the C18th-C20th. Little tools, but an important part of the heritage of the “The Black Country” with its industrial history in metalworking.

“….nothing is great or little otherwise than by comparison.”  

Gulliver’s Travels . Jonathan Swift . 1726
