Chain-Makers, Chapels and Pubs – Peter Head


Cyprus based author and son of Cradley, Peter Head, takes us on a journey spanning two centuries. It is the Journey his family took from the countryside of Shropshire to the industrial heartland of Cradley where much of the world’s chain was being forged.

It is a story of Chain-makers, Chapels and Pubs as some family members became ministers, and others became publicans. In charting the story of his own family Peter Head tells the history of the most important chain-making town in the world from its infancy to its post industrial present.

Born into a family passionate about the Black Country dialect, the final part of the book contains the most comprehensive glossary of Black Country words and phrases since Jon Ravens Black Country Waerd Books of the late 1970s
