Amazing craft work by the saddle makers. So beautiful the saddle created over the years. They have made ornate fantastic Saddles to Sheiks and the craft gives its Nick name the the Walsall football team ... 'The Saddlers'.

Yes, there is a large shop with a good selection of locally made leather goods such as wallets, purses, belts, bags etc. The prices are very reasonable.
