Do you know of a great place to visit in the Black Country?

Stately home?
Musuem?
Gardens?
Walks?
Gallery?

Then post under here and let others know what to see and where to see it in the Black Country Area
I will then place the info in the main post so that anyone who would like to see what the Black Country
has to offer has the information to hand.
