THE Black Country Living Museum is calling out for memories of a former Brierley Hill butchers’ shop.

Marsh & Baxter’s High Street shop will be recreated in the Tipton Road museum's new 1940s-60s town centre as part of its ambitious new project Forging Ahead but bosses need the public's help to ensure they get it right.

The once well-known Midlands butchers had more than 50 shops throughout the region and ran popular advertising campaigns (pictured below).

The Brierley Hill shop was sold off in 1978, when the factory that produced the pork closed but the recreation will be set in the early 1950s, a time when meat was still rationed.

This will allow museum visitors to learn more about rationing and how it impacted locals as well as the history of the firm and food production in the Black Country.

There are also plans to allow visitors to try freshly made pork pies and faggots.

Anyone with memories of the shop - particularly those who worked there or shopped there - should email or call 0121 557 9643.
