Alvechurch is a quintessentially English village on the outskirts of Redditch and Birmingham, with deep-running roots that can be traced back to the eighth century.
Its shopping centre, which runs along the High Street that used to be the main road between Birmingham and Redditch before modern bypasses were built, remains a focal point for the community catering for the needs of over 6,000 residents.
Today Alvechurch is a mixture of old and new with the kind of good road and rail links, good schools, good shops and good pubs that never go out of fashion.
Visitors from all across the country also flock to the famous Alvechurch Marina, next to the train station, which is a popular place to hire canal boats on the Worcester and Birmingham canal. It’s an ideal place to start out, especially as it’s just a couple of miles from the famous Tardebigge flight, which is a uniquely challenging run of 30 locks!
