Black Country residents will soon be given the chance to delve into their area’s local history.

Black Country residents will soon be given the chance to delve into their area’s local history.

The My Postcode History project will allow residents of Wolverhampton, Dudley, Sandwell and Walsall to win a guide to the history of their street by taking part in a competition.

Local people or organisations will be encouraged to enter a postcode of a location anywhere in the Black Country – and four lucky winners will receive a brief history of their neighbourhood written by Wolverhampton City Council’s Landscape Archaeologist Paul Quigley.

My Postcode History has been launched by the Distinctly Black Country network, an organisation to connect people and organisations who are interested in the way the past has created the modern Black Country landscape, and aims to enable people to find out a little bit more about their part of the Black Country.

To find out more about the project and to enter the competition, please visit: www.distinctlyblackcountry.org.uk/postcodehistory.

Entries will be accepted between Friday June 15 and Friday July 13, 2012.
