Birmingham is located in the West Midlands and is the most populous British city behind London. The population of Birmingham is approximately 1 million people; 6 million people live within 50 miles of the City. Birmingham has far too many areas to mention.
Birmingham evolved from a small 7th century Anglo Saxon hamlet on the edge of the Forest of Arden. In the Saxon 6th Century Birmingham was just one small settlement in thick forest – the home (ham) of the tribe (ing) of a leader called Birm or Beorma which is the origin for its name. According to the educational film ‘More Canals Than Venice’, in 1875 three quarters of the world wrote using pen nibs made in Birmingham. By the beginning of the 21st century, Birmingham lay at the heart of a major post-industrial metropolis surrounded by significant educational, manufacturing, shopping, sporting and conferencing facilities.
The housing stock ranges from large-scale Victorian terrace housing, through pre-war suburbs to historic cottages and modern up-market housing. There are developing new towns such as Telford and Redditch on the fringe of the conurbation, with beautiful countryside beyond.
