Removal Company Dudley
Dudley is a large town, located towards the Staffordshire border on the western side of the West Midlands. The town is locally known as the Capital of the Black Country. Wolverhampton is ten kilometres north-west of Dudley, while Birmingham is seventeen kilometres to the east. The town’s nearest train station is Dudley Port, which is a few kilometres north-east of the town centre, but the town is well-connect by road to surrounding settlements.
Dudley was first recorded in the 1086 Doomsday Book, when it was named as Dudelei. Dudley Castle, the ruins of which can still be visited today, was built in 1070. The castle was the focal point of the town throughout the centuries, and enabled Dudley to become a market town; early production of iron meant that this market was not simply for agriculture produce, but metal too. The coal deposits near Dudley were also considered important from the Middle Ages onwards and helped the town achieve a level of prosperity. However, during the 16th and 17th centuries Dudley actually became rather poor, and it was only the advent of the Industrial Revolution that transformed the towns fortunes. In Dudley, a new method of producing iron was discovered, and this together with road improvements and the construction of the Dudley Canal turn the town into an important industrial hub. The population increased in line with this, though living conditions only caught up in the early 1900s when council housing was built to enable the removal of slums.
Dudley is increasingly becoming a commuter town, as the Dudley High Street is continuing to suffer in the age of Internet shopping. A third of all shopping units were empty in 2014, and the presence of the large Merry Hill shopping centre nearby compounded these problems. A range of chain-store branches have closed in recent years; these include WH Smith, the outdoor clothing and equipment company Millet’s, and chocolatier Thornton’s.
Dudley Property Market
The Dudley property market is mainly comprised of traditional terraces, converted apartments and new build homes, making the area appealing to a range of different movers. The average property price in the town is £173,234; this is the approximate cost for a three-bedroom house. Four-bedroom houses would cost closer to £275,000. Rental prices are relatively affordable; the average for Dudley’s rental market, which includes flats and houses of all sizes, is £540 per month. Though generally Dudley is affordable, there are some streets with properties that are over three times the average house price. A move to Lydiate Hill Road for example would cost on average £542,000, according to Zoopla.
