Out of darkness cometh light.

Wolverhampton is the hampton of Wulfrun, and the place in the West Midlands, England, where we (mainly Fabrice) live since January (2017), date at which Fabrice took up his position of Director of Studies for Physics.


It is nearby Birmingham (the big local city, in fact, UK's second) and Telford (UK's fastest growing city) and not too far from Shrewsbury, Worcester, Stafford and Coventry. Almost as close are Stoke-on-Trent, Manchester and Liverpool. It is not even far from London (less than 2 hours).

It is one of the three millennium cities (along with Brighton and Inverness [1]) and the first town in Britain to introduce automated traffic lights (in 1927), in Princes Square, at the junction of Lichfield Street and Princess Street. Charlie Chaplin, who might be of black country origin, made his debut as a pageboy in a Sherlock Holmes story in the city theatre (the Grand), where also Churchill held a meeting (in 1909) that got disrupted with stink balls by local suffragettes. The city was home to a few history-making people, including a Nobel prize in chemistry (Arthur Harden) and the first signature on the Declaration of Independence on the 4th July 1776 (Button Gwinnett). The local football team, the Wolves, were the first English to play in the Soviet Union.
