    Black Country sayings

    I’m originally from Cannock Chase so don’t know some of the Black Country phrases and lingo - I seem to think of things like “It’s a bit dark over Billy’s mother’s” but would love to get an insight into phrases that wouldn’t make any sense outside the Black Country.

    There are only two man-made objects that can be seen from space.

    1. The Great Wall of China

    2. Low Hill at Christmas

    My mother worked in a cinema as an usherette , which was also known as a Corsetičre, because she used to go round with a torch checking tickets telling people in the wrong seats
