About The West Midlands
West Midlands is a metropolitan and ceremonial county in the larger West Midlands region of England. A landlocked county, it is bordered by Staffordshire to the north and west, Worcestershire to the south, and is surrounded by Warwickshire to the east. The largest settlement is the city of Birmingham.
Birmingham is home to so many different industries that it was nicknamed the “city of 1001 trades”. Trade (buying and selling) has been an important part of life in Birmingham for 800 years.
Coventry was the birth place of the bicycle and has a large car industry. It is also famous for its aircraft, which is why it suffered such heavy bombing during World War ll.
Stoke-on-Trent is the centre of the ceramics industry. Wedgwood, Spode and Royal Doulton all have factories here. Together with nearby towns, it makes up an industrial area known as ‘the Potteries’. Worcester and Derby are also known for their fine porcelain.
