As surveyors we appreciate the vast range of properties in West Midlands and on our visits when carrying out surveys in West Midlands area we have highlighted below some of our favourite places such as Aldridge, a quiet and attractive town which is popular with families due to its amount of green spaces. Aston, home to Aston Villa Football Club. The pretty village of Berkswell which is seen as the perfect English village with its beautiful village green and attractive buildings, we particularly like the bow fronted village shop!. Birmingham which is home to some of the biggest convention centres in the country including the NEC (National Exhibition Centre), ICC (International Convention Centre), The NIA (National Indoor Arena) and the LG Arena. The leafy suburb of Bournville which is home to Selly Park Museum . Within the museum you can truly sample life in Tudor times within this beautifully restored Tudor timber framed manor house which is one of the oldest buildings in Birmingham. Castle Bromwich which has a village green at its heart giving it a village feel despite its size. Coventry a well planned post war town as many of its historic buildings were destroyed during the Second World War however some interesting architecture has survived including the city wall and historic gateways. Dudley where you must visit the Black Country Living Museum and then shop till you drop at Merry Hill shopping centre. Edgbaston which is home to the Warwickshire County Cricket Club and houses the huge University of Birmingham campus which stretches to around 250 acres. Halesowen with the St John the Baptist Church , a Norman church with a 15 th century tower and later additions from the 19 th century. The churchyard contains many old graves including that of a local poet called William Shenstone, of whom there is a monument in the church. Lye, an attractive and leafy area located between Stourbridge and Halesowen with plenty of countryside right on its doorstep. Oldbury whose canals are used for leisure past-times such as fishing and boating and where Titford Pool is well known as a beauty spot following major reclamation work. Solihull which has plenty of green spaces with many parks to enjoy. Discovery Walks take place once a month offering a chance to explore a particular part of the countryside and discover its history. Stourbridge which has been associated with glass making for several centuries. Sutton Coldfield which is well known as being the home of The Belfry which has frequently been host to the Ryder Cup. Barr Beacon in Walsall is West Midlands highest point with a height of 745 ft which was used as a beacon point for message sending. Today the area is enjoyed by many as a nature reserve as well as a scenic area for walking, cycling and just to take in its magnificent 360 degree views over the surrounding countryside. The market town of Wednesbury which is reported to have been the site of an iron age fort. West Bromwich which has a 16th century large timber framed Yeomans house called Oak House on Oak Road which has been carefully restored and now houses a museum offering information on the Tudor times.
