Walsall is historically part of Staffordshire but now forms part of the Black Country. Its heritage in saddle and leather making is remembered in the nickname of the town’s football club, Walsall, known as the Saddlers, and for handbags which are still a favourite of Queen Elizabeth. The Arboretum is one of the town’s main visitor attractions.
