Brierly Hill Location
Brierly Hill is a small town located towards the western border of the West Midlands and is located approximately in the middle of Dudley to the north-east, and Stourbridge to the south-west. It is a rather industrialised area within the borough of Dudley. In recent years, Brierly Hill has been designated in a local government development plan as an area in which a new town centre for Dudley can be created. The town does not have a train station but is relatively well connected to the surrounding areas via ‘A’ roads.
Brierly Hill History
Brierley Hill is a relatively young settlement with the earliest records dating back to the 17th century, and the heavily industrialised nature of the town mentioned previously is unsurprising given that it was essentially the Industrial Revolution that caused the town to be created. Stone quarries, glass works, as well as coal and iron plants were established in the area, and a school and market were also set up to help accommodate the workers and their families. The early 1900s saw the material deposits become depleted, and thus there was a removal of some of the industries. This decline led to a 25% unemployment rate in the 1980s. The old site of the steelworks is now the location of the Merry Hill Shopping Centre.
Brierly Hill Economy
Since the decline of manufacturing in the area, Brierly Hill is perhaps yet to find a new identity with regards to its economy. There is certainly signs that this is now occurring. The Merry Hill Shopping Centre is part of the intu chain – the same company behind the Trafford Centre in Manchester – suggesting that there is optimism for growth and redevelopment in the town. The Brierly Hill Regeneration Partnership has also been set up, which aims to promote growth and create new job opportunities in the town, as well as building new homes.
