Oak Barn Road, Halesowen, B62 (ref: 28816823)Shortlist
Location - Halesowen lies approximately 7 miles from Birmingham City Centre and is just minutes away from junction 3 of the M5 motorway giving access to the greater motorway network all around the West Midlands. The History of Halesowen stems back as far as the Anglo Saxons and it was listed in the Domesday Book as being larger than Birmingham. It forms part of the southern edge of the Black Country and during the industrial revolution it became synonymous with nail and screw making, an industry that still survives to a lesser extent today. Despite its proximity to the Black Country it still retains areas of beauty and Grade I listed Leasowes Park is thought to be one of the first natural landscape gardens in England. In certain areas the town is predominated by a vast array of Victorian houses but further development during the 1960’s and 70’s saw the building of several large housing estates. It has a number of highly sought after schools foremost of which are the Earls High School and Windsor High School and Sixth Form. Whilst Halesowen no longer has a train station of its own the Worcester to Birmingham line passes along the northern edge of its boundary and the stations of Cradley Heath, Old Hill and Rowley Regis are all within a few miles of the town centre. Halesowen bus station is a busy interchange and regular service runs to Birmingham City Centre.
