Removal Company Halesowen
Halesowen is a fairly populous town in the West Midlands. It is approximately ten kilometres from Dudley to the north, and fourteen kilometres from Birmingham in the north-east. The town is mainly suburban, although it is surrounding by a green belt and thus has good access to the West Midlands countryside. There is no train station in the town, but Halesowen is well-connected via roads and a bus network.
As of 1086, Halesowen was in fact a larger settlement than Birmingham, and was part of Shropshire. The middle ages saw Halesowen have its own market, which led to an increase in the town’s population to around 600. The population increased far more rapidly as a result of the Industrial Revolution, during which Halesowen was known predominantly for its nail manufacturing and coal mines; in 1919, there were 130 operational mines. More recently, Halesowen has been significantly redeveloped. There has been a removal of most of the older buildings, a new shopping centre has been developed, and the high street has been pedestrianised. An ASDA superstore has also been built, as well as the bus station being completed refurbished in a project valued at £30 million.
Halesowen has not suffered perhaps as badly as many other former coal-mining towns in the area since the industry was shut down, and it is believed that the excellent road links to the town have been crucial in attracting business to the area. Retail suffered to some extent when the intu Merry Hill shopping centre was built in Brierley Hill, but there were no high-profile closures. A range of companies have a head office in the town; these include legal services company Communicourt, software developer mFortune, and Swedish engineering company Sandvik.
Halesowen Property Market
The property prices in Halesowen fall slightly below national averages. The average asking price is currently £235,847; a move to a three-bedroom house could prove cheaper than that, although a move to a four-bedroom house is likely to cost closer to £320,000. Rent on average is £590 a month; flats tend to be lower than this figure, and houses of any size usually are more expensive. The more rural areas to the south-east and south-west of Halesowen are amongst the most expensive areas; Lodge Close and Lutley Lane are two of the most premium addresses.
Halesowen housing Demographics
The population in 2011 in Halesowen was 58,135 and is estimated to have risen by around 1000 people since then.

Amongst the places of most cultural interest in Halesowen is the Leasowes Park. The park, designed by poet William Shenstone, is believed to be one of the first landscape gardens in England, having been first worked on in 1743; it is also a Listed area. The remains of 13th century Halesowen Abbey can also be visited.
