Some history of Pensnett
More information on Pensnett to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to Pensnett 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 Pensnett. There is information on Staffordshire dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.

"On Friday evening last, as the mail cart that plies between Dudley and Kingswinford, was proceeding down the hill as the top entrance to the
churchyard on the way to Kingswinford, it met with an accident. The horse fell down, cutting itself very badly, and breaking the shafts of the cart. The three occupants
- Gillam [the driver], Mr. Greenway, and Mr. Horton - were thrown out, but they all escaped with a shaking. A cart was procured from Norris, butcher,
into which the mails were transferred, and after about half an hour's delay they were safely taken to their destination. There is no wonder horses fall at this place.
The road is in a shocking state, and dangerous for all manner of vehicles."
