Walsall is a town in the Traditional County of Staffordshire and is part of the West Midlands conurbation. It lies to the east of Wolverhampton and to the northwest of Birmingham. It is a traditional centre of the leather industry.

It forms a focus for the road system in the north-east of the Black Country, and features an excellent example of an early 20th century bypass, the A4148 Broadway, which was constructed in the late 1920s.
