Willenhall town is historically famous for the manufacture of locks and keys. As early as 1770 Willenhall contained 148 skilled locksmiths and its coat of arms reflects the importance of this industry to its growth.
It was home to the National Union of Lock and Metal Workers from 1889 until 2004. Today, the town is best known for The Locksmith House Museum, with a house and backyard workshops typical of the many family run lock making businesses which once thrived in the town (WV13 2DA).

Relationship breakdowns and heartache
Even if you were the one to instigate the breakup, the end of a marriage or relationship is difficult and will throw your life into turmoil as you realise there are lots of issues to work through with the person you no longer want to be with. Communications will be tricky and stressful. Maybe you didn’t see the break-up coming and are in shock or have escaped a violent marriage and don’t know which way to turn. Whatever the reason, dealing with your feelings isn’t easy. The other side of the coin could be that you still want to be with your partner and to be married. Releasing a relationship for whatever reason, can leave the future looking very bleak and intimidating. It’s a difficult time. Don’t be afraid to ask for help.
You will be forced to deal with issues you never thought you would have to consider such as sharing childcare, moving house, dealing with in-laws and if the separation isn’t amicable you could be led into lengthy court proceedings; dealing with solicitors and legal jargon. All this will take its toll on your mental wellbeing. You have to remember that thousands of people every year go through this process too. The majority of them go onto lead happy and enriched lives and say that they are the happiest they have ever been. There is light at the end of the tunnel, you just need to find a way to see it and maybe you need someone to guide you to that illumination.
You’re likely to feel an abundance of emotions; one minute on a high of adrenalin when something goes your way and the next grieving for what you believe you have lost. It’s a rollercoaster and you are not sure when the ride will stop. Anger and confusion only add to the severe anxiety which is making you hyper-vigilant.
