The History at Home series has a new look! You can now take a tour around some of the museum’s buildings and find out more about what life would have been like for the people who lived and worked in these buildings.

This week we have a tour of the first building to be rebuilt at the BCLM: the  Anchor Maker’s House. The house dates back to 1885 and originally stood on Lawrence Lane, Old Hill. It was dismantled in 1978 and is now set in 1910.

Join BCLM Duty Manager Kev Cooksey as he guides you around the property and reveals some of its hidden stories…

Don’t forget to check out past instalments of History at Home. You can also explore our Lockdown Learning series, sharing research into the Black Country’s past, present and future.

You can support BCLM during this difficult time by buying a ticket for when the museum reopens or by donating here.
