New Homes in Wednesbury

Welcome to Wednesbury

Whether you’re exploring museums, taking the kids to the park or enjoying a spot of retail therapy, there’s something for the whole family to see and do close to the market town of Wednesbury. Located in the Midlands within commuting distance of Birmingham, a new home in Wednesbury could just tick all the right boxes for your next move.

A quick history

Wednesbury dates back to the Iron Age, with the discovery of a hill fort in the local area. During Anglo-Saxon times, historians believed there were a number of battles in the region, and it was later fortified against invasion from the Danes. By the time the Domesday Book was recorded, Wednesbury was a thriving settlement, but it continued to be mainly agricultural until the first coal pits were opened in the 14th century. The town later became known for pottery, nail making and the local steel works which closed in 1980.

Business and industry

There are a number of employers in the area including furniture retailer IKEA, along with other shops at the local retail parks. Located within easy reach of Birmingham, lots of people commute into the city for work from Wednesbury, where employers include National Express and the universities.

Things to do in the area

Wednesbury town centre is a bustling place with a weekly market and a pedestrianised shopping area, along with cafes, restaurants and visitor attractions including Wednesbury Museum and Art Gallery. If you enjoy discovering more about local history, Walsall Leather Museum and the Black Country Living Museum are both nearby.

If you like to follow sports, you can watch West Bromwich Albion play top-flight football at The Hawthorns, while other sporting facilities include Walsall Golf Club and Boulder Central Indoor Climbing. For families moving to Wednesbury, there are plenty of kid-friendly attractions nearby including Sandwell Valley Country Park, Dudley Zoo and Castle, Drayton Manor Theme Park and Walsall Arboretum.

For a spot of retail therapy you can visit the Bullring shopping mall in Birmingham, while the city is also home to independent shops at The Custard Factory and a popular annual Christmas market in Victoria Square.

Travel and commuting

Wednesbury has good transport connections by both road and rail, with West Bromwich only a 5 minute train journey or 15 minute drive away, and Birmingham just 20 minutes away by car or train. For journeys to London, you can get to the capital in two hours by train from Bescot Stadium, with one change at Birmingham New Street.

When you’re jetting off on holiday, you can get to Birmingham Airport in 45 minutes from your new home in Wednesbury.
