Wherever the leather on my shoes take me to
A far off beach, a stretch of coast a fabulous view
I always head back home
Home to Wolverhampton
Where my family reside
Where they all abide
The surroundings of Wolverhampton

On Saturday 20th June 2009 I was in the process of penning this rhyme about Wolverhampton. All the miles that I travel I always look for Wolverhampton on road and motorway signs. Approaching I always look for the church of St Peters. I needed a picture to go with the poem and remembered when I lived that side of town occasionally I go to the top of Sedgley Beacon for the panoramic view. You can see Birmingham, Worcestershire, and the Wrekin in Shropshire and of course St Peters church Wolverhampton.

I made my way to the height of Sedgley Beacon for the first time in over 20years and found it to be a clear day.

THE CHILDREN of LADY WULFRUNA © Robbie Kennedy Bennett

Growing up in Wolverhampton
my town, your town, our town.

all the well known factories,
famous, nameless and others
where son's toiled alongside
their fathers, cousins and brothers.
