The map below depicts the area that is covered in this story
Dudley Castle is on a hill that's two thirds of the way up on the left hand side.
The town stretches from the bottom of Castle hill to 'Top Church' on another hill.
The lower half of the map is occupied by 'The Old Park'.
This is reserved for the hunting of game by the Baron of Dudley and his kin.
That name is applied to a housing estate that now occupies the site.
