Smethwick

About Smethwick

Smethwick bridges the Black Country with Birmingham but retains its own unique place in history as the original home of the world’s oldest engine made by engineers Matthew Boulton and James Watt. Its heritage was cemented with firms such as GKN and Chance Brothers glassworks employing many people. As of 2017, the Midland Metropolitan Hospital is being built here.
