Goldthorn Park


Goldthorn Park

Goldthorn Park is a suburb of Wolverhampton, West Midlands. It is situated to the south of the city centre within the Blakenhall ward. It is mostly 1930s housing, with later additions from the 1960s and 1970s. The area is historically located within the Manor of Sedgley and was administered by Sedgley Urban District Council until the government changes of 1966. Goldthorn Park includes the Park Hall Hotel, a popular venue for private functions, which was originally Sedgley Park Hall, home of the Lords of the Manor of Sedgley. Goldthorn Park was increased in size with the building of new estates in the 1970s and is a pleasant residential area.
