This includes the areas of the old counties as they existed
before the major boundary changes of the 19th and 20th Centuries,
as well as the areas brought into them by those changes. In
particular the modern metropolitan boroughs of Birmingham, Coventry,
Dudley, Sandwell, Solihull, Walsall and Wolverhampton (collectively
known as the West Midlands) are within our area. The metropolitan
boroughs of Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall and Wolverhampton are
also sometimes collectively referred to as "The Black Country"
