Bobbington is a small village close to the Shropshire border. Bobbington is quite an ancient settlement, at the time of the Norman conquest, the settlement was owned by the Saxon, Wivar but the Domesday Book records that it had passed to Wivar, who held it from the Norman overlord, Robert of Stafford. Not that Bobbington was a major metropolis - only a few people lived here and only six ploughs worked the landscape.
Halfpenny Green airport is nearby. This airfield was constructed at the outbreak of World War 2. It was decommissioned in 1953 but in 1961 was reopened as a private airfield. It was recently renamed to become Wolverhampton Business Airport.
