    The original Black Country is a region of the West Midlands in England, known for its history of coal mining, iron production, and manufacturing during the Industrial Revolution. The region gained its name due to the high levels of coal and pollution that covered the buildings and landscapes in a layer of black soot. The original Black Country includes the towns of Dudley, Walsall, Wolverhampton, and parts of Birmingham and Sandwell. Today, the area is still known for its manufacturing and engineering industries, as well as its rich cultural heritage.
