Black Country Pit
It was opened in 1899, adjacent to Gospel End Village more than a mile west of Sedgley village centre, and on its closure on 2 March 1968 was the last remaining pit in the Black Country, marking the end of an era stretching some 300 years.
For the last two years of its existence, it was situated within the boundaries of Seisdon as part of a local government reorganisation. It also remained part of Staffordshire after 1974, when Sedgley became part of the new West Midlands county.
Baggeridge Country Park
The former coalfields are now the site of Baggeridge Country Park, landscaped with a lake, wooded areas and walkways; work commenced in 1981 and the new country park was officially opened by The Princess Anne on 17 June 1983.
