This pair of houses are made from cast iron in 1925, you can read more about them here.
We were able to look around the ground floor and learnt more about the houses from a very helpful guide.
Hobbs and Sons is renowned for its food. You cannot visit the Black Country Museum without having something to eat from here. It was the best fish and chips I have tasted in years.
