Smethwick Area Guide
Located 4 miles west of Birmingham city centre, Smethwick is a town in Sandwell that played an enormous role in the Midlands’ industrial history. From pottery, to steel, to steam engines, many of the products that have enabled the UK economy to thrive over the years have been made in Smethwick.
Today, the town still has a mixture of wonderful sites, both old and new. A particular highlight is Smethwick’s Old Church, which dates from 1732.
