The Bearwood Bloggers might be interested in this article about our tiny hamlet from last week’s Birmingham Post Property supplement. I’m slightly confused about the suggestion that there are only 7 roads in Bearwood (?) and the reference near the end stating:
“A year ago in Thimblemill Road, one of the largest in Bearwood, residents mounted a petition to prevent their addresses taking on a Smethwick postcode.”
For a start off, Thimblemill Road in Bearwood is fairly small, I’ve heard nothing about any such proposal to change the postcode, nor a petition, and finally, there is no Smethwick postcode…. they are all Birmingham postcodes. As for house prices, I suspect the Methodist Preacher’s heart would have missed a beat or two if the houses in his road were valued at between £160,000 to £170,000!
