FAO any Tipton Baggies.  There's a good bit in the photograph section of The Grauniad today. Fame at last.

That ain't the cracker. That's the flats in St. Marks Road. The ground they're on about is between them and The Lost City.

I'm not sure how many are familiar with Northern Ireland but the Glebefield Health Centre reminds me of police stations there. Necessary security!

The cracker is back of Darby End, any other is an imposter. If there is one in Tipton then they clearly nicked it like most things that reside it.

An area that prides itself on the notoriety of the lost city ffs.

This.
I was told Cracker is a BlackCountryism for the burnt out iron/coalslack that gets chucked out of a foundry. FWIW, I worked in a foundry for 2 months once, Jeez it was hard graft. It taught me never to go back in one.
BTW, I can't do the linkeage thing but if someone fancies doing it, it'll make more sense.Ta.
