Removal Company Bilston
The town of Bilston is located in the northwest of the county of the West Midlands; specifically, the town in situated on the south-east of Wolverhampton. Prior to the formation of the West Midlands as a county in 1974, the town was part of Staffordshire. The town is connected to the middle of Wolverhampton by the West Midlands Metro light railway line.
The earliest known reference to Bilston was made in the year 985, when it was known as Bilsastena. By the time of the Doomsday book the settlement, which was a village at the time, was called Bilsetnatun. Like so many other small towns near large modern cities, the Industrial Revolution transformed Bilston from a small town to an industrial complex, which in this case focused on coal mining. A lot of housing was built to accommodate the workers, though in the middle of the 20th century there was a removal of these terraces to be replaced by more modern properties for council housing. In the late 20th century there was arguably a slight decline as the town tried to adapt to the lack of industry, but since then there has been regeneration, such as the re-opening on the Town Hall.
Bilston’s economy is fairly localised, with few large companies basing themselves in the area and only really low-end chain stores in the town centre. The Bilston residents who are not working in the town are likely to commute to Wolverhampton, Dudley or Birmingham. In the past, Bilston’s economy was centred around the coal and steel industries; the steel industry was shut down by the Labour government in 1979.
