It was valued at 15 shillings under the name of “Alrewic” which may have originated from an abundance of alder trees in the area. Aldridge began as a small agricultural settlement with farming being the most common occupation up until the 19th century. In the 20th century, new housing and industrial estates were developed and in 1974 Aldridge became part of the Metropolitan Borough of Walsall. The core of historic Aldridge remains, preserved in a conservation area, an affluent area with several large private residences.
