Season 2

Once again, the majority of the filming took place within the Museum’s Canal Arm around the Anchor Forge, taking on a Post WWI transformation into regular character Charlie Strong’s Small Heath based Scrap Metal Yard. 

This season, the Peaky Blinders gang stepped onto the back yards of our cottages, setting an iconic scene as Tommy walks down our white chalked alleyway and into the back yards weaving through the hanging laundry.

Right on our doorstep, neighbouring attraction, Dudley Canal Trust were also part of season 2 as Uncle Charlie takes an injured Tommy from our canal arm the the DCT tunnels travelling to 'London' (Liverpool Marina).

Andrew Lovett, Chief Executive "We are delighted to welcome the Peaky Blinders back to the Museum, there is a real buzz on site and amongst staff.  Many people think that the series was all filmed in Birmingham, but because many parts of the city were razed to the ground during the war, filming period drama there is difficult so it’s great that filming can still take place in the West Midlands at the Black Country Living Museum."
