Oldbury is an industrialised market town and the administrative centre for the borough Sandwell. Oldbury was once part of the ancient parish of Halesowen, then a detached part of Shropshire surrounded by Worcestershire and Staffordshire.
Property in the area tends to be a mixture of traditional style semi-detached houses and affordable ex-local authority homes, mostly with off-road parking. They are popular with families and there is easy access to Birmingham and the motorway network. There are also quite useful transport links, including a bus service operated by National Express West Midlands and Diamond Bus providing links to Birmingham and the Black Country District.
Oldbury is situated between Smethick and Rowley Regis. The town has several notable businesses including the original Lloyd’s Bank which was opened in 1864.
Despite being a built-up area, Oldbury is home to some lovely green spaces including Tividale Park. Another popular park is Broadwell Park which has outdoor exercise equipment, fitness stations, and a small stream.
