»Emile Doo's Chemist Shop

Doo's Chemist Shop is a replica of Mr. Harold Emile Doo's shop at 358 Halesowen Road, Netherton. Harold qualified in 1908 as a chemist and inherited this shop from his father in 1929. It was in 1900s when chemists such as Harold's father played an important role in the local community's health and well being. Harold was a chemist for 60 years and died in 1970 due to ill health. From 1968 to 1973, the shop was untouched, when it was in the process of being donated to the Black Country Living Museum, where it is presently located.

»Bumble Hole Branch Canal

This quiet canal was once the center of a lot of activity. Around 1,600,000 liters of waters was pumped out of this canal everyday for mining purposes. Ferries used to run up and down the canal carrying coal from the mines. Today, inside the Warrens Hall Local Nature Reserve along with other reminiscent structures of the mining era, lies this beautiful little water body decorated with bridges and inhabited by swans. The hard work of this canal has almost been washed away by the lush greenery and the serenity of the place. Yet, the nearby Cobb's Engine House, Timbers Gallows Crane, etc. still remind you of the days when industrial workers, miners, timber yards, saw mills and brick kilns were the things surrounding the canal. The canal has been preserved very well by the authorities and the adjoining park gives you an opportunity to explore.
