Midlands

A grassy plain called the Midlands lies in the center of the English Lowlands, just south of Pennines. Parts of the Midlands extend along the western and eastern borders of the Pennines. The Midlands are the industrial heart of Great Britain. Birmingham, one of the world's great manufacturing cities, and Wolverhampton and other factory cities are near the center of the Midlands in what is called Black Country.
