Area Guide for Redditch

Redditch lies within the county of Worcestershire.  Birmingham is approximately 15 miles north of the town and to the south west lies the city of Worcester.  The name Redditch is derived from ȁC;Red-DychȁD; believed to be a reference to the red clay of the River Arrow.  In the 1960 Redditch became a model for new town planning.

The town is ideally placed for access to the M5 and M42 and the wider motorway network making it an ideal location for the commuter.  Birmingham International Airport and the National Exhibition Centre can be accessed off Junction 6 of the M42.

The nearest railway station is located in the nearby village of Alvechurch which offers a mainline service to Birmingham and Lichfield.  There is an extensive network of local bus services

In the 19th century it became the international centre for the needle and fishing tackle industry. At one point 90% of the world's needles were manufactured in the town and its neighborhoods.  The town has a National Needle Museum.  By the 21st century needle-making and other traditional industries had been replaced by modern light industry.

Redditch has a large shopping mall, The Kingfisher Centre, which forms the town’s primary retail outlet.  It is famous for its palm trees in the centre of the mall.  Redditch also has The Arrow Valley Country Park which covers 900 acres.

Redditch was the home of the Royal Enfield motorcycle. This is where the main factory of the original company was located and the business continued manufacturing through the sixties.

John Bonham from the legendary rock group Led Zeppelin, was born in Redditch.

Redditch boasts some beautiful villages: Feckenham, Cookhill, Sambourne, Beoley, Alvechurch to name but a few.  The village of Inkberrow is where the long running radio series, The Archers, is set.  We sold a property in Alvechurch where it was reputed that Shakespeare had lodged whilst writing ȁC;The TempestȁD;.

Redditch is well placed for those wishing to take part in countryside pursuits.  It has a very active equestrian community.

Redditch can offer a wealth of different styles and locations of homes.  If you have chosen to live in the Redditch are we are sure we will be able to find a home that.
