Cradley is in the Black Country of the West Midlands of England, historically in north Worcestershire, now Dudley.

Our home town of Cradley was at the forefront of the industrial revolution that swept the world and it became famous for hand-made iron chain, also coal mining and brick making.

This web site - like its forerunner also called Cradley Links - is dedicated to advancing knowledge of our rich local and family history and making it widely available.
