Understand

The West Midlands county (902 km2) is primarily urban. Nonetheless, there is countryside, the 'Meriden Gap', between Coventry and the rest, and Sutton Park is the largest urban park in Europe. The West Midlands county should not be confused with the wider West Midland region, at whose heart it sits.

The county borders and is surrounded by the three counties from which it was created in 1974 (clockwise from the West): Staffordshire, Warwickshire and Worcestershire. Since that creation, its boundary changes have been minor.
