Tipton`s History Through Street names.
An illustrated talk by Keith Hodgkins.
Many street names reflect important aspects of local history and the Tipton Civic Society has been keen to perpetuate local identity by suggesting names for streets in modern developments. Nearly 150 new names suggested by the Society have been accepted by Sandwell Council over the past 30 years and this talk will look into the background of some of them.
