Problems with our phonelines

We're having some problems with our phonelines. Apologies for the inconvenience. We're working to get this fixed as soon as we can. You can report problems and request services here on our website →

Our collections


We hold a wide selection of local newspapers that can be viewed on microfilm, including:

  • Express & Star
  • Oldbury Weekly News
  • Smethwick Telephone
  • Tipton Herald
  • Wednesbury Herald
  • West Bromwich Chronicle

We do not hold full runs for all newspapers, but overall our newspapers date from 1857 to the present day.

The catalogues for these collections are not currently available on the Black Country History website. Please contact us for more information.
