Old Hill

 
OLD HILL is a town in the heart of the Black Country, in the West Midlands. Traditionally it is part of Staffordshire. Historically, the local economy was based on Heavy Engineering and "Metal Bashing". But the major employers such as Joseph Shakespeare, Eliza Tinsley, Central Manufacturing, and Holden & Hunt are all long gone. The present population is approximately 240,000.
