(or is it a true suburb
?) tucked away between West Bromwich
in the West Midlands
county. A canal
runs through it. A motorway
runs through it. It has a hypermarket
and fast bus connections to Birmingham
. It's on the road to Wolverhampton
... In other words, like many suburbs, it's defined by where it isn't
. But the vistas off its Rowley hillsides are sublime (looking off at all those elsewheres).
It's full of that which springs up in the place of yesterday's dead industries, so maybe it's defined also by when it isn't.
