Wombourne tourist information

Wombourne, situated 4 miles south-west of Wolverhampton, is said to be the largest village in England.

A number of attractions in this area around Wombourne for day trips or a longer holiday.

Running through the western side of the village is the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal. Along the canal to the north are the Bratch Locks, consisting of a flight of three locks, two bridges and a tollhouse. Adjacent to the Upper Bratch Bridge, the octagonal tollhouse now houses a chandlery and information point.

The former Wombourne railway station lies on the South Staffordshire Railway Walk. This footpath follows the track bed of the former Great Western Railway Stourbridge - Wolverhampton line. Wombourne Station houses a cafe and information point for the path.

Between Wombourne and Kingswinford stands Himley Hall (in the West Midlands). This 18th century Palladian mansion, the former home of the Earls of Dudley, is set in 180 acres of parkland designed by 'Capability' Brown. The park includes a great lake, fed from a series waterfalls from a higher chain of small ponds. Himley Hall has often been patronised by royalty and in 1936 Edward VIII (later the Duke of Windsor) spent his last weekend here before his abdication. Today Himley Hall is owned by Wolverhampton and Dudely District Council.

Just to the west of Wombourne is Baggeridge Country Park. Ideal for countryside walks.
