These pages give the origins of many of Wolverhampton's street names.  The project was initiated by Peter Hickman, based on earlier work started by the U3A, led by Rudi Herbert. Peter  provided the first 50 entries. 

The names of contributors appear in italics at the foot of their contribution.  Where the name given is "Anthony Perry" these entries have been taken, with his permission, from his book "The Folds of Wolverhampton".  But note that these entries were written by Frank Sharman working from the book and to that extent Frank is to blame for any errors, not Tony.

All additions to the street names listed, and all further suggestions and comments on those already listed, are very welcome.
