A History of Webheath begins with its origins in around 1250 and includes its time within the Forest of Feckenham. The boundaries of the parish, which have been altered over the years, once covered a far greater area, extending down through Upper Bentley, across Crumpfields to Heathfield Road. Following Birchfield Road to Headless Cross and back along the other side of the road, the area also comprised Tack Farm, the outskirts of Hewell Grange and up to Tardebigge Church.
The book charts Webheath’s evolvement from a sleepy, rural agricultural village to the present day thriving community now encompassed within the town of Redditch in Worcestershire. With maps and photographs it contains much information on local landmarks, place names, farms and houses, major local landowners and notable residents.
