Walsall means or at least the words it’s derived from ‘Walh halh’ means ‘Valley of the Celtic speakers’.
Although it started life as a settlement and grew to a small market town, little more than a village of 2,000 in the middle ages, by the 1900’s it had a population of around 86,000. Industrialisation brought prosperity to the town by means of coal mining, limestone quarrying, metal working and manufacturing. Walsall produced saddles, chains, buckles and plated ware.
Walsall was famous for its leather trade and is still the home of the English saddle industry. There are still around 90 active leather companies in Walsall.
Now it is also home to a number of big businesses including the RAC’s control centre and T K Maxx’s regional depot, Homeserve plc and South Staffordshire Water.
Walsall Leather Museum
The museum dedicated to leather in Walsall is housed in an old leather factory and tells the story of Walsall’s connection to the trade. At its peak 10,000 local people worked in the industry making saddles and bridles and other products including bags – 3 of these manufacturers held the Royal Warrant at one time.
Castle Comfort Stair Lifts DON’T have a Royal Warrant. As yet our Queen who has reigned for 60 years this year and Prince Phillip are still pretty fit. However if you want to feel like royalty and glide to the top of your stairs on a stairlift, we’re definitely the people to contact.
We can assess your staircase however grand to see which type of stairlift will work best for you. If your staircase is grand and curved, a stairlift to cope with this may be a little more expensive as it will need to be custom made. But if you don’t have ‘royal’ funds, there are grants and 0% finance to help you afford your stairlift. And of course don’t forget our £50 voucher which you can use towards the cost – no one is too grand to take advantage of that!
