Located in the West Midlands, Wolverhampton borders Staffordshire to the north and west, Dudley to the south and Walsall to the east. There has been a settlement in Wolverhampton for more than 1,000 years, and it was also the site of key battles between the Saxons and Danes. However, it wasn't until the industrial revolution that Wolverhampton became a major town. A centre for iron and coal mining, Wolverhampton became the gateway to the Black Country - so called because of the industrial pollution that covered the area. During this period Wolverhampton had the world's largest trolleybus system. Wolverhampton was granted city status in 2000, making it one of three 'Millennium Cities'.
