Some history of the Bird in Hand at Cradley Heath in the County of Staffordshire
More information on the Bird in Hand at Cradley Heath to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to the Bird in Hand from another page. When building the site it is easier to place links as they crop up rather than go back later on. I realise this is frustrating if you were specifically looking for information on the Bird in Hand. There is information on Cradley Heath and Staffordshire dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.
