    • Education for Kids

The anchor and chains for the Titanic, and her sister ships Olympic and Britannic, were made in the Black Country - the anchors were some of the biggest ever made!



The anchor was over 15 tonnes and 18 feet long!



Chains and anchors came in all shapes and sizes, meaning women and children were responsible for making them in backyard forges.



Anchor makers made a good living, better than many people in the area.
