Wolverhampton is a city in the West Midlands and is home to around a quarter of a million people.
A city of industry and culture
The city of Wolverhampton lies northwest of Birmingham in the West Midlands. Historically part of Staffordshire, Wolverhampton grew as a market town at first and was known for its expertise in the woollen trade. Once industry began to flourish, it became known for coal mining, steel production and the manufacturing of cars and motorcycles. In the modern era it is known for having a sizeable aerospace industry and a formidable service sector.
Arts in the city
As well as its strong industrial history, Wolverhampton has a vibrant city centre, including a creative quarter including popular venue The Slade Rooms, the Light House Media Centre Arthouse Cinema and the Arena Theatre. In recent years the city gained the attention of art lovers when 30 wolf sculptures were installed around the centre and subsequently auctioned for charity.
Wolverhampton on the up
Wolverhampton is the second largest part of the West Midlands conurbation. To the north of it lies the Staffordshire and Shropshire countryside, making it an ideal location for those with a penchant for enjoying our country’s rural heritage. Wolverhampton has green belt space around the western part of the city.
The city has undergone many regeneration schemes in recent years, resulting in a location that is both aware and respectful of its heritage but moving forward with the modern era. It has a great deal to offer residents old and new, and with motorway access and strong public transport connections, has the potential to become a hub for a great many people. Our projects in Wolverhampton will serve the community well.
