Walsall & surrounding area

The name Walsall is thought to mean "valley of the Welsh speakers" (referring to the Brythons, an ancient Celtic people). From the13th century Walsall was a small Market Town, until the Industrial Revolution in the 16th century, increased the population to over 86,000 people. Walsall manufactured a wide range of products including saddles, chains, buckles and plated ware, with limestone quarrying provided the town with much prosperity. Following two World Wars, Walsall underwent modernisation in the 1950’s and later in the 1970s with a new town centre being built at the expense of some medieval properties. Another era of urban regeneration occurred recently with brownfield sites being replaced with modern houses, flats and offices. Areas still under redevelopment include the Waterfront south and north, St. Matthew's Quarter and Walsall Gigaport for businesses. Properties of any age or size can become susceptible to pest problems such as woodworm or issues with condensation.

Most of the western and central parts of Walsall are densely urban areas.  In contrast, the eastern part of the borough is set in a more rural landscape with many suburban settlements. Flooding can come from surface water or groundwater such as runoff from land, raised ground level water as well as streams, ditches and small rivers like Ford brook. Excees water can be brought on by flash flooding during heavy rainfall, such as in 2014 where Walsall neighbourhoods and roads in Streetly and Aldridge were badly affected. Excess damp from flooding or prolonged heavy rains can enter through the fabric of a property leading to possible structural damage and timber decay from penetrating or rising damp. Whilst problems such as dry rot may occur months after the wet event in voids or under floorboards which are out of everyday sight.
