Well I visited the Black Country museum today. It's a working museum based on the Victorian age and what was going on in the black country area.
As you walk in there is an indoor exhibition centre explaining what each area of the black country produced..
Here is a pump
Most of the museum is based outside it has mining
It also has a replica of the first steam pump, used to pump out flood water from mines..
One of the original things on site was the lime kilns.
It also has examples of Industry, such as the press
and the chain maker
There was also a good selection of working boats
I also took a trip through Dudley tunnel, you can do it in your own boat assuming you can fit and also you have to book 24hrs in advance, thought the trip boat was an easier option
It is well worth a visit and I glad I came to have a look..
