Removal Company West Midlands
West Midlands Location
The West Midlands is one of the smallest counties in England but is also the second most populous. It is situated between Worcester, Staffordshire and Warwickshire, and includes the cities of Birmingham, Wolverhampton and Coventry. Despite being one of England’s most urbanised counties, the West Midlands contains 22 Sites of Special Scientific Interest. The most rural area in the county is the metropolitan borough of Solihull.
West Midlands History
The cities that comprise the West Midlands have been significant economic hubs since the Middle Ages. Birmingham and Wolverhampton were known for their metalworks industries, and coal and iron industries also expanded during the Industrial Revolution; Coventry meanwhile developed a reputation for car production. However, the county itself is very new, having only been created in 1974 under the Local Government Act 1972.
West Midlands Economy
The West Midlands industrial heritage is mostly a thing of the past now, but the removal of industry dominance has led to an influx of various employment opportunities. Birmingham has a very strong service sector and companies including HSBC and National Express have offices there, while Coventry is home to consultancy company KM&T. There are government plans for West Midlands to become an economic powerhouse, reminiscent of its old industrial strength, and this is certain to bring more growth and employment to the region.
West Midlands Property Market
Though the county is perhaps assumed to be one giant urban sprawl, this is not entirely true; the West Midlands benefits from a location that places it within easy access of the Peak District, the Cotswolds, and the peaks and valleys of Wales. This, with the addition of excellent transport links, means that movers aren’t simply buying a property in the West Midlands, but also easy access to most of the country. The average house price in the West Midlands is £220,204, though in reality this can fluctuate greatly depending on where in a city the property is for example. Within Birmingham, Moseley and Edgbaston are popular. Coventry meanwhile is very well-regarded throughout. For movers who are happy to commute, great value may be found in Sedgley and Brierley Hill.
West Midlands Demographics
As mentioned, the West Midlands is the second most populous county in England, with only Greater London having more residents than the West Midlands’ 2,897,300. The West Midlands is very ethnically diverse; much more so than the national average. Only two-thirds of the population are White British, with 6% being Black and nearly one in five being Asian. This brings with it a range of religions that are practiced in the county including Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Sikhism and Buddhism.
West Midlands removal Company – Culture
Birmingham boasts an array of cultural and leisure exploits. Being a large city, it has great shopping and eating scenes, with the focal point of this being the recently regenerated Bullring shopping centre. The city is also famed for its nightlife. Coventry offers a quieter experience, where visitors can climb to the top of the Cathedral’s spire or visit the Coventry Transport Museum. For a more rural taste of the West Midlands, Dudley is a good option; it is home to a zoo which looks after various endangered species, while the Black Country Living Museum offers an immersive view of what life was once like in the area.
