More Black Country Chapels by Gareth Williams

Book Description

For 250 years chapels have been at the heart of Black Country life - both social and religious. Poor social conditions in this heavily industrialised area stimulated the growth of religious nonconformity, and chapel influence is strong even today, despite many closures and demolitions over the last few years. In this book, the follow-up to "Black Country Chapels", published in 2004, Ned Williams covers the areas that were not dealt with in detail first time round - including West Bromwich, Oldbury, Wednesbury, Walsall, parts of Dudley and Wolverhampton, as well as Halesowen and Stourbridge. He has spoken to chapelgoers from a wide range of denominations and has recorded their memories. This is, therefore, a first-hand account not only of the buildings themselves but also of the wide-ranging and active social life that surrounded them - Sunday schools, Scouts and Guides, choirs, youth groups, parades and carnivals, outings, sporting events and so on. Illustrated with a wide range of old and new photographs, drawings and paintings, posters and other ephemera, "More Black Country Chapels" will bring back memories for anyone who was born and brought up in the Black Country, and records a fascinating aspect of the region's history that was at the heart of every community - but is now fast disappearing.
