Brierley Hill

Background Information
There is a phrase in the Black Country that goes "Well, I'll Goo to Brierley Hill" because the letters correspond with Bloody Hell. Which isn't far off those seasoned lines: "When Satan stood on Brierley Hill, And far around him gazed, He said: "I never more shall feel, At Hell's fierce flames amazed."

Brierley Hill was, up until the 17th century, a waste common land. It was once part of Pensnett Chase, first noted as a settlement in Kingswinford Manor's Court Rolls of 1619. Although the town has become synonymous with steel, it was glassmakers who first brought industry to the area. This was because of the abundance of raw materials on and around the hill here.

Brierley Hill was also settled by squatters who worked shallow coal seams, dug the fireclay for brickmakers and started the town's association with metal manufacture by opening many small forges to work iron.

Until recently, there was a large glass factory shop in Moor Street. However, the nearby glass factories around the back of the church have long since had their halcyon days. Likewise, the whole town has suffered serious decline since the construction of the adjacent Merry Hill Shopping Centre.

In an attempt to move with the times, the local council built the Moor Centre in 1985. It is partly built on the site of the old Marsh and Baxter factory. The company was started in 1867 at a small pork butcher's shop in the High Street but grew into the largest sausage and pie factory in the country. The modern visitor will find this hard to believe but the company's buildings dominated the skyline here.

An even bigger factory complex called the Round Oak once stood on the site of the Merry Hill Shopping Centre which now sombrely represents the shift from manufacturing to retailing en masse. This, along with its counterparts at Newcastle and Sheffield are Britain's new cathedrals where consumerism is worshipped.

The parish church of Saint Michael stands on the highest point of Brierley Hill and commands a view over the surrounding industrialised regions and beyond. Originally built in 1765, the church has been altered over the years. Indeed, the West Tower was almost totally rebuilt in 1900. The interior is worth further investigation and features a chancel in the form of a modified apse. Built as part of a restoration in 1873-8, it is separated from the nave by a semi-circular arch on Ionic columns.

One famous name associated with Saint Michael's is the eighteenth century poet Thomas Moss. Born in Wolverhampton in 1738, he was appointed perpetual curate [he called himself minister] of the newly-built church after he had read at Emmanuel College, Cambridge. He is known for his poem "The Beggar" which was published in the Gentlemen's Magazine. In 1828 an engraving was printed which depicted a beggar pleading for alms as he stood miserably beside the door of a small house. The engraving became enormously popular and could be found adorning the walls of many Victorian drawing rooms whilst the poem became a standard work for recitation by schoolchildren. The poem is mentioned by Jane Austen in Northanger Abbey and a printed calico version of the verse is mentioned by Charles Dickens in Nicholas Nickleby.

In front of the church's graveyard is the town's war memorial. The soldier on top is modelled on Stan Harley who joined the 1st Battalion the Worcestershire Regiment in 1914 when he was only 15 years old. He won the DCM in France and returned to Round Oak Works in 1919. The memorial was made by George Brown and Sons in Kidderminster. If you look closely in the plants on the grassy bank below the memorial you'll spot a cannon. This was manufactured by Bailey Pegg who were based in Bull Street.

Important to Workmen - Mr Joseph Francis Woodcock was yesterday summoned before J. Leigh, Esq. and the Rev. F. J. Clarke, for the non-payment of 1. 3s. 9d., as wages due to a workman named James Holding. Mr Woodcock told the Magistrates that he ought not to have been summoned as defendant, because he was merely the agent of Mr. Stephen Hipkins, for whom the defendant had been employed. He also said the work charged for had not been done. The defendant informed the Bench that on the 14th of November he and others received fourteen days notice to leave, and that during that time he was only allowed to make six days and a quarter, the manager not permitting him to go on for a longer time. The claim was therefore for work not in reality performed. There were two other similar cases, the complainants being George Terry and Benjamin Hammond, one of whom said there was work to be done the whole time. Mr Leigh said the complainants were undoubtedly entitled to their wages for the whole time. The law of the case was clear, that the men could not leave without giving fourteen days' notice, and that the master could not discharge them without giving them notice for a similar period. Unfortunately, the Magistrates had no power to make an order for work not actually done, and the complainants must summon their master in the County Court. He, however, ordered the expense of the summons to be returned to them."

1834 White's Gazetteer and Directory
Brierley Hill is 1 miles north of Stourbridge, and two miles S.S.E. of Kingswinford, is a populous village and chapelry, consisting of several streets, and having in its vicinity extensive coal, iron, and glass works. It enjoys the benefit of the same canal, and strata of coal, iron, and clay, as its neighbour, Amblecote. By an old deed, it appears that coal and ironstone were got here as early as the 46th of Edward 111 [1373]. The main coal is about ten yards thick. The chapel of ease is a neat brick edifice, erected by subscription about 1767, and has 900 sittings, of which 388 are free. The rector of Kingswinford is the patron, and the Reverend Robert Harris the officiating curate. The first minister here was the Rev. Thos. Moss, B.A. author of the elegant little poem called the ''Beggar's
Petition,'' but he afterwards removed to Trentham, as domestic chaplain to the Marquis of Stafford. The Delph is a village on the canal, where there is a rise of nine locks. Hero are many nail makers, and a large fire brick manufactory.
