Brownhills Removal company
The town of Brownhills is close to the northern boundary of the West Midlands, adjacent to Staffordshire. Brownhills is approximately ten kilometres away from both Cannock in the north-west, and Walsall towards the south-west. The town is located relatively near to the Cannock Chase Are of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The town does not have a train station but is well-connected by main roads and motorways.
Brownhills appears to be a relatively young town, that was largely created as a result of the Industrial Revolution. There are no written records of the town before the 17th century; Ogley Hay however, an area within Brownhills, was mentioned in the 1086 Doomsday records, suggesting that a settlement has existed in the area for longer than Brownhills officially has. Mining began in the 17th century, but really reached peak productivity in the late-1800s when a connection to the South Staffordshire railway led to huge expansion in the mining operation and thus the size of the town. At one point, 80% of the population worked in the mines. These shut down in the 1950s, and Brownhills economy has struggled to thrive since that point, but regeneration efforts are hoping to change that pattern.
The local authorities have set out a plan to rejuvenate the local economy of Brownhill in their ‘Townscape Masterplan’. This particularly focuses on the high street, which is viewed as an area that needs improvement. There has already been the removal of high-rise apartment blocks, and the creation of a new town square, but the main aim is to attract new businesses to the town’s existing shopping areas so that there is a prosperous hub, which would then hopefully cause further growth and employment opportunities. Currently, main employers in Brownhills include the supermarkets – Tesco, Aldi, and FarmFoods, as well as industrial companies on the edge-of-town industrial states.
Brownhills Property Market
Currently, the average price for a property in Brownhills is £204,748. A move to a three-bedroom property is likely to cost less than this though, with the average price being £182,497; movers seeking a four-bedroom house can expect to pay £283,929. Rents currently average out at £540 per month. Three addresses in Brownhills are estimated to be considerably more expensive than the town’s average; Heron Close, Kingfisher Close, and Curlew Drive properties are all valued in excess of £300,000.
In 2011, Brownhills had a population of 12,676. This population is in line with national average ages, having a mean age of 40 years. Just under 96% of Brownhill residents were born in England, and there is no significant migrant population in the town. Nearly half of the Brownhill population are married. Around a quarter of the population still work in industrial/manufacturing jobs.
Part of the regeneration plan includes a desire to increase the cultural capital of Brownhills, which currently is lacking. Perhaps the most notable cultural event in the town is the annual Canal festival with a range of entertainment and boat trips.
