The town of Kingswinford is to be found just of the A491 south of Birmingham and to the west of Dudley, it is a town that can trace its history back to Roman times at which time the area was heavily forested. Mentioned in the Domesday Book the village remained small until around 1290 when it is recorded that coal mining was being undertaken in the area, by the 1800’s coal mining and ore extraction from the area required the new technology to be made available and the railways came to Kingswinford. This railway is of particular historical interest as it the engine used on this track was the first steam engine made in the Black Country – the engine “Agenoria” can be seen today a the National Railway Museum in York. The next major change to effect what was a small village was the influx of new residents in the 1950’ and 1960’s which saw a period of rapid house building. Today Kingswinford still retains its unique character, there is the 12th century Church of St Mary with its Norman tower that was restored in the 17th century, Summerhill House which can trace it roots back to the 17th century and there are many examples of buildings dating from the 18th century that were homes for local industrialists who made their money during the Industrial Revolution. Kingswinford is a little treasure, a village that enjoys all the amenities that a modern lifestyle requires and yet integrates these attributes with a convenient location.
