Lost Wolverhampton Has Found A New Home

Hello and welcome to the new home of Lost Wolverhampton.

It’s hard to believe that it has been a whole twelve months since I ventured into the world of blogging; the year has flown swiftly by. As for writing my blog posts, I have enjoyed every minute spent on it, and I must say that the response from your good selves has been overwhelming.

I have been bowled over at the number of people that have come to read my nostalgic posts on Wolverhampton, and it has been very encouraging to find out that there are other people around who enjoy talking about old Wolverhampton, and the people they remember as an important part of it.

After much deliberation, over cups of coffee with my grandson, we came upon the idea to create a new website, and try to broaden the scope of the Lost Wolverhampton blog a little.

The new website here still has my blog, where I plan to continue writing my little reports, which will now collectively be known as The Howl.

All of my past articles I have posted from last year have been brought over from the old blog, although I haven’t transferred any of the comments that were made on those posts, as I felt that would be a bit too bold of me.

The main idea to expand on things is to invite you all to join our forum. You will be able to write about your own memories of Old Wolverhampton, and share your knowledge with others.

It is my hope that www.lostwolverhampton.co.uk will eventually grow into a fun and interesting community for anyone who enjoys the diverse history of Wolverhampton, so be sure to sign up!

Please have a look around the new Lost Wolverhampton site. I very much hope you like it.

    1. Thanks megzi and clan.
      Its so nice when I get youngsters of school age visititing the site and finding it of interest. Please pass the website address on to your form teacher at school and perhaps when he or she, is pursuing a project on local history. With my knowledge of the Black Country, Bridgnorth and Wolverhampton inparticular, I could be of help.

  4. Hi,
    I came across your blog and subsequently this new website by accident!
    It has certainly brought back a lot of memories for me.
    I was raised in Drummond Street, off Newhampton Road, with a full view of the Molineux. I attended St Peter and St Paul school and remember several of the images on your site.
    I hope you are able to trace a lot more photos of the ‘old town’!
    Regards

    Joe

  8. Heya just came upon your blog from Google after I typed in, “Lost Wolverhampton Has Found A New Home | lostwolverhampton.co.uk”
    or perhaps something similar (can’t quite remember exactly). In any case, I’m happy I found it simply because your subject material is exactly what I’m searching for (writing a university paper) and I hope you don’t mind if I
    collect some material from here and I will of course credit you as the source.
    Thank you.

  9. I will be in Wolverhampton Nov 18 – 20 and would love to meet up with any old boys from St. Peters School. I attended in 1950 to 1953 and the only school photo of me I have ever seen was posted on this site and would love to meet the person who has this photo to recall old memories and hopefully make a few new ones.
    I realize this is very short notice, but the trip is rather unexpected.Billy I would love the opportunity to meet with you also – you are doing an outstanding job.
    For which I thank you sooooo very much
    Anyone interested in a get together please email me and I will await with fingers crossed that someone would like to talk about old times.
    Meeting Place to be established best for the participants.
    Thanking you in advance
    Ken Poole
