Removal Company Aldridge
Aldridge is a medium-sized town in the county of the West Midlands, situated within the borough of Walsall. The town is located in the north of the county, close to the border with Staffordshire which it was once part of before the county of the West Midlands was created in 1974. The town is known for being one of the wealthier areas in the West Midlands region.
Aldridge was first documented in the Doomsday Book of 1086, where it was named as ‘Alrewic’, potentially in reference to Alder trees. Until the industrial revolution, the town was based around agriculture, but once industry began to develop coal mining and brickworks became the predominant employers. Farming did still continue on the eastern side of town however, as the depth of deposits in this area mean that mining was not cost-effective. In the 1900s, amenities were built in the town; administrative offices, shops and housing. For a period, the town also had an airport, though this was mainly used during the Second World War and thus declined in usage after the war ended.
Unlike many former-industrial towns which have since seen the removal of their factories, Aldridge has remained a local industrial hub for manufacturing and storage of company goods. Brickwork and plastics are two of the products of Aldridge’s industrial companies. The town has a decent selection of well-known shops and restaurants towards the south, which will provide jobs for those who do not wish to commute to the cities nearby.
Aldridge Property Market
Currently, average asking prices for a house in Aldridge are £388,492. This is rather high, though it is largely a result of the number of larger houses in the area; 5-bedroom houses are common and cost movers on average £733,328. A three-bedroom house on the other hand is far less, averaging £287,075. The average rent is £687 per month, and flats are more commonly available to rent than houses. The most expensive streets in the town are Ellsmore Meadow and Mill Lane, both of which have houses that are valued on average above £750,000.
According to the UK 2011 Census, Aldridge has a population of 26,988. 93.8% of the population is White, with the second largest ethnic group being Asian. The town has a slightly ageing population; a quarter of residents are over 65 while only 19% are under 18, and the highest proportion of residents are aged between 50 and 59. Unsuprisingly, Christianity is the dominant religion; the largest minority religion, excluding those who identify as following no religion, is Sikhism.
