It was historically part of the ancient manor of Sedgley, becoming part of the Sedgley urban district in 1894, remaining part of this authority until 1966, when it became part of the Seisdon Rural District in 1966, despite the bulk of Sedgley being absorbed into Dudley County Borough. This in turn was replaced by the South Staffordshire District in 1974. However, it still has a Sedgley DY3 postcode.
The main entrance to the Baggeridge Country Park, on the site of the former Baggeridge Colliery, is situated to the west of the village. Also in the village is the original works (and former headquarters) of Baggeridge Brick, now part of Wienerberger AG.
