More about Erdington
Erdington is a suburb and ward of Birmingham that is historically part of Warwickshire. Its postcodes include B23, B24 and B72. It is 5 miles (8km) northeast of central Birmingham, and borders Sutton Coldfield. It is also a council constituency, managed by its own district committee. The formal council constituency consists of the ward of Erdington and Tyburn, (formally Kingsbury), Stockland Green and Kingstanding, although all of Kingstanding and most of both Tyburn and Stockland Green wards lie outside the historical boundaries of Erdington. Stockland Green was formerly part of Aston, Kingstanding part of Perry Barr and Tyburn partially split between Aston and Hodge Hill. Erdington was part of the Sutton Coldfield constituency before 1974. If you are looking for say, bed and breakfast or b&b, we have just the place for you.
Erdington is fairly close to Birmingham town centre and can be reached by a short train journey. Not far is Pype Hayes park, a well known open space plus golf course.
The suburb grew quickly during Victorian and Edwardian times particularly during the railways boom. Chester Road station sits on the main line through to Birmingham New Street Station. It’s also well known for being close to the longest bridge in Britain (yes that’s right.
The Bromford Viaduct which carries the M6 motorway over a sizeable part of Birmingham. Half way along is the world famous “Spaghetti Junction which connects central Birmingham with the motorway via the A38 (just a stone’s throw from Villa Park, home of Aston Villa football club).
The junction has to take in two rivers, three canals and two railway lines and is situated at an old traditional crossing point.
Close to Erdington is the huge Fort Dunlop Shopping Centre, which lies on the site of the old Dunlop tyre and golf ball manufacturing factory. At one time, ten thousand people worked there (before it’s sad gradual demise).
