Sedgley is a small urban town in Dudley, West Midlands larger than a village but smaller than a city. Historically Sedgley fell in the county of Staffordshire and was formerly an ancient manor made up of several smaller villages before the Sedgley Urban District was formed in 1894.
Sedgley has never had a rail or canal link due to its hilly geography, but travel is not hindered as it is served by bus routes to nearby areas including Wolverhampton, Dudley, Bilston and Tipton.
Sedgley has some coal and fire-clay mining and engineering, but is mainly a residential area.
Dudley is quite a large town in the West Midlands and located south of the city of Wolverhampton.
Dudley is home to Dudley Zoo (the ruined Dudley Castle is within its grounds), the Black Country Living Museum, several churches, schools and Dudley market. Dudley has many transport links including Bus and Train routes into London, Birmingham International Airport only 18 miles away, Wolverhampton airport just 10 miles away and main roads which give a direct route to neighbouring towns and cities.
