Bilston appears in the written record as early as Wolverhampton does and developed as an agricultural, and then as an industrial centre. It has always been associated with the villages of Bradley and Ladymoor. Later it included Ettingshall. It had its own local government until 1966 when it was forced into a much enlarged Wolverhampton.
