OLDBURY

Once known poetically as 'the town of four moons' for the light pollution of its industry, Oldbury has brought us comedian Frank Skinner, Time Team's Mick Aston and the classic song It's a long way to Tipperary written by Jack Judge. 

Oldbury once had a drinking fountain at its centre, surmounted by a life sized iron statue of Europa, known affectionately as Polly On The Fountain. One Christmas Eve, some revellers attempted to woo her, leading to her being pulled down and broken.
