Halesowen Road, Cradley Heath, B64 (ref: 28733087)Shortlist
Location - Cradley Heath lies to the North of Halesowen and falls within the boundaries of Sandwell Borough Council. As the name suggests it was originally Heathland between Cradley, Netherton and Old Hill. During the early 19th century a number of cottages were built encroaching onto the heath along the banks of the River Stour, mainly occupied by home industries such as nail making. During the industrial revolution Cradley Heath developed and became famous not only for nails but was once known as the world centre of chain making. It was the birthplace for the Black Country Bugle and is thought to be the historic home of the Staffordshire Bull Terrier. In fact you would be hard pushed to find anywhere more Black Country than Cradley Heath. Cradley Heath is great place for first time buyers on a limited budget. Predominated by Victorian terraced housing it offers some fantastic opportunity for starter homes. It also retains some of the finest examples of grander Victorian Homes in street such as Sydney Road, which has been used by the BBC for filming Peaky Blinders. Cradley Heath retains a very traditional High Street with not one but two market halls with a large Tesco in the centre. It has its own Train Station which provides links to Birmingham and to Worcester, alongside a bus interchange just outside to station. It is only a few minutes’ drive (or even a reasonable walk) from the large Merry Hill shopping centre. Close by is Haden Hill Park, a historical Victorian landscape with a Victorian Mansion and Tudor Hall. The landscape offers stunning views of the surrounding area. The park is a popular venue for historical local events and environmental activities. It has children’s play areas, bowling greens, ornamental lakes and formal garden areas. It is also said that the hall is haunted. Ormiston Forge Academy (formerly Heathfield High School) became an Academy in 2012 and was rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted in 2016.
