The History of Smethwick


This DVD looks at the surprisingly rich and varied history of Smethwick as it grew from an insignificant country hamlet into a teaming industrial town. Containing much original research, it also describes the far reaching changes of the post-war period, telling he story through both the present day landscape and archive material.

To quote Dr Carl Chinn “in recent years Smethwick may have lost its independence yet no-one should forget either its history or its vital contribution to the making of the modern world”

Produced in association with Smethwick Local History Society
