Way back in May 2005, we took a party of French friends to visit the ‘Black Country Living Museum’ in Dudley, West Midlands. It could not have been a colder day. But on a plus side, it was great for taking photos, hardly anyone there. The museum looks like it has changed a lot in the last ten years, but this is how I saw it then. I would like to go back, but I’m not sure I would ever have it nearly all to myself again. You might be wondering where our French friends were, in the pub of course, keeping nice and warm. I wanted to try and make the museum look timeless, almost like looking through a pile of old postcards. There are a couple of bodies hanging around, but hopefully not sticking out too much. Of course ten years ago I had no idea I would use them for a blog, anyway I hope you enjoy the trip down memory lane 🙂
A little about the Museum…..The Black Country Living Museum is an open-air museum of rebuilt historic buildings in Dudley in the West Midlands of England. It is close to Dudley Castle in the centre of the Black Country.
Set in 26 acres the Black Country museum has over 40 buildings that recreate the atmosphere of life in the Midlands during the ‘Industrial Age’. Buildings include an old school, shops, houses, a cinema and an Inn.
