Hednesford Removal Company
Hednesford is a small town on the northern outskirts of Cannock, towards the south of the county of Staffordshire. It acts as an entryway to the Cannock Chase Area of Outstanding National Beauty. Hednesford also comprises the parish of Brindley Heath, a very rural area to the north of the town. Hednesford does have its own train station, which connects the town to Walsall and Birmingham.
Like much of southern Staffordshire, Hednesford has a history of coal mining. The industry is no longer operational, but a Miner’s Lantern hangs in the town centre as a tribute to Hednesford’s past. The development of the town that occurred as the mining industry developed essentially caused the communal centre of the town to shift positions; the oldest part of Hednesford is actually in the north, but the centre is now in the south because this was the area where the miners housing was developed. As develop has continued in Hednesford and in the neighbouring town of Cannock, the two towns have begun to merge slightly.
Hednesford Housing Economy
Since the 1980s, Hednesford has increasingly become more a commuter town than a hive of economic activity in its own right, and this has negatively impacted the local economy to some extent. The high street in the town is rather traditional with independent stores rather than large chain companies; the counter-argument to that however is that it maintains the town’s individuality, and many people prefer browsing in independent stores. There has been some investment in the town in recent years though, with a new Tesco and retail park being developed that will create hundreds of jobs for the local area. Hednesford Park is also being improved, with financial backing from the Lottery Fund.
Property Market – Moving House
The average house in Hednesford costs £182,457, placing it below the national average, and a three-bedroom house in the area tends to be valued around the average figure. For four-bedroom houses, the price rises to £278,846. The average rent is £515 per month. However, despite on average seeming rather affordable, there are certainly some expensive areas in Hednesford; Heather Valley properties are valued on average at £412,454, Keys Close houses are £360,942 and properties on Croxley Drive are valued at £341,609 on average.
Hednesford has a population of 17,343 according to the 2011 Census. The average age in the town was 39, meaning that broadly it is in line with the national population, which has an average age of 40. 6.6% of the male population at the time was unemployed, and 4.7% of the female population was unemployed. 72.4% of the population owned their house outright or had a mortgage. 98% of the population were British national, meaning there is no real ethnic diversity in the town.
One of the most famous attractions in Hednesford is the race track. Hednesford Hills Raceway is a stock car track located on the east of the town, and since the 1950s has been somewhat of a cult attraction for motorsport enthusiasts. The Museum of Cannock Chase, referring to the Natural Area, is also located in Hednesford.
