Welcome to Ansley Parish Council

Welcome to Ansley Parish Council website. 

The Parish has approximately 1000 homes and over 3000 residents. It is split into four quite different areas which are the villages of Ansley Common and Ansley , the hamlet of Birchley Heath, and Church End and surrounding outlying areas. The word “Ley” in Ansley and Birchley means clearing in a forest, which stems from our history as part of the Forest of Arden. A lot of our history revolves around the mining and farming industries, but there are also references to ribbon making and brick making industries in the past.

        The Parish

Ansley common in distance, cars on the street

Ansley Common

Here you can see a view of the main street which shows some of the old miners cottages in the foreground and the new houses which have been sympathetically built to blend in with the old ones. In Ansley Common there is a church hall, a school, a community hall in the old peoples complex, a recreation ground, allotments  and a couple of shops.

White pub over the road

Ansley Village

This is the view from the village green, which shows one of the original pubs in the village (now a residence) and also the sculpture from the Heritage trail. Apart from the the Lord Nelson pub, Ansley Village has a church hall, a shop, a hairdressers, a recreation ground with a children's play area and allotments. And most importantly, on the entrance and exit to Ansley Village; the prominent Ansley Coal Mining Heritage Wheel.

Birchley Heath

Birchley Heath is by far the smallest of the three and this view is looking down the main road towards the park. The park is leased by the Parish Council for a peppercorn rent but we have recently updated the play equipment and are very pleased with the result. There are no other facilities, although there is a shop and a Pub ( and a brewery!) in nearby Ridge Lane which is within walking distance.

Church in the distance

Church End

Church End is fairly self explanatory. It is a lovely backwater with far reaching countryside views, centered around the church. There are no facilities here apart form the Church and Annex, but we do have a War Memorial located on the crossroads with the main Birmingham Road which has stood since 1920.
