Location - The landscape of Rowley Regis (known locally as just Rowley) is dominated by St Giles Church on Church Road and incorporates the small locality of Blackheath. Once a municipal borough in its own right it was merged into Warley Borough in 1966, subsequently to be absorbed into Sandwell Borough Council in 1974. It also marks the highest point in the West Midlands at Turners Hill with its two large radio transmitters sitting aloft. During the industrial revolution Rowley Regis became synonymous with nail making and was an important coal mining area. ‘Rowley Rag’ continues to be quarried at nearby Hailstone Hill, renowned as one of the best road surfacing materials in the country.
Rowley has a house for everyone from the Victorian terraced houses of the 19th century through the larger semi detached and detached houses built on the estates developed during the 1960’s and 1970’s. Even today significant amounts of building still goes on and the David Wilson development in Glaslyn Avenue had become one of the sought after locations in Rowley. Rowley is well served by Blackheath High Street with its selection of traditional shops and Sainsbury supermarket just of the town centre. Blackheath also still holds a weekly market.
Well served by public transport Rowley Regis train Station provides direct links to Birmingham and Worcester and has a large park and ride faculty. It is also just a couple of miles from Junction 2 of the M5 providing access to the greater motorway network of the West Midlands.
