I'd ask anyone viewing this to:
a) Notice how clean and tidy the area appears in the pre-outdoor gym pictures.
b) Consider the intrusive nature of this development. Local residents were not informed at any stage before this was built, nor wiere they consulted during the build. The site is a playground after the staff leave and it is the source of litter, noise and annoyance to residents who have the misfortune of living near it. Shame on the local Council.

Fondly referred to as "the cathedral of the Black Country" a fine, well loved Parish Church.

The Parish Church of St Thomas & St Luke (Top Church). The presentbuilding dates from 1826, replacing a much decayed mediaeval church of which only the small crypt remains. Some years ago during building renovation it was discovered the builders had used cast iron in the roof but such was the caution at the time the cast iron struts were duplicated with timber.
The other picture by Alan Todd, of a stone church is incorrectly identified as St Edmund's. Alan's picture is of St Chad's Roman Catholic Church, Coseley.
This is a statue of William Ward, the first Earl of Dudley.
