Some history of Wednesfield

Below is a view of Church Street in Wednesfield at the end of the Victorian era. Many of the properties on the left-hand side of the street survived into the 21st century. In January 1902 the Church of St. Thomas was almost completely destroyed by fire. The church tower is part of the original building but much of the remaining structure was replaced. However, the building was rebuilt in a similar style and fashion but with a larger chancel. Erected in 1745, the first place of worship was consecrated in August 1750 as a chapel of ease of St. Peter's Collegiate Church in Wolverhampton. It was first known as the Chapel of St. Thomas in Wednesfield until a separate parish was created in 1849.

Quotation

A Halted Mail Coach by Henry Thomas Alken [The British Postal Museum and Archive]

"At each Inn on the road I a welcome could find; At the Fleece I'd my skin full of ale; The Two Jolly Brewers were just to my mind; At the Dolphin I drink like a wheale. Tom Tun at the Hogshead sold pretty good stuff; They'd capital flip at the Boar; And when at the Angel I'd tippled enough, I went to the Devil for more."
