Walsall is a large industrial town in the West Midlands of England. It is located 8 miles northwest of the City of Birmingham and 6 miles east of the City of Wolverhampton.
Walsall has had many industries, from coal mining to metal working. In the late 19th century, the coal mines ran dry, and Walsall became internationally famous for its leather trade. Walsall still manufactures the Queen’s handbags, saddles for the Royal family and leather goods for the Prince of Wales. Walsall is the traditional home of the English saddle manufacturing industry, hence the nickname of Walsall Football Club, “the Saddlers”.
