Lady Wulfruna Statue

Wolverhampton is a City of great character with over a thousand years of recorded history.

Although evidence suggests that an early settlement existed as far back as 1200 BC it was during the Saxon era that the town was recorded as a community.

In the year 985 the first known charter of Wolverhampton was granted by King Aethelred (the Unready) to Lady Wulfruna, a local lady of some distinction within the royal court.
