Traffic and Transport in Nineteenth Century Kingswinford, by Michael Hale

Booklet published by the author in 2000, 64 pages. A5 size booklet (S5896)

Kingswinford is an area in the West Midlands, and was historically a village in Staffordshire (that was mentioned in the Domesday Book). In the nineteenth century the village grew into a major industrial centre, and transport (especially the canals and railways) played a key part in this transformation. This booklet examines the history of transport and traffic in the area during this period, and includes sections on:

  • Kingswinford Branch 1845
  • Stourbridge Extension Canal
  • Thomas Wight's Evidence
  • Kingswinford Branch 1858
  • The Branch in later years

Condition of the booklet is generally good. The cover has some minor scuffs, blemishes and creases, and some light nibbling along the edges, but the staple spine is intact and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound.
