Sedgley: Well placed for commuter families

Sedgley: Well placed for commuter families

Moving house can potentially be one of the biggest decisions a person makes in their lifetime. Therefore, it can often be helpful for prospective re-locators to get a good idea of what the local area has to offer in terms of transport, local amenities and entertainment.

Parents, for example, will be keen to know what a town's educational facilities are like, whereas professionals with jobs in the city will be more concerned about available commuter links.

Property for sale in Sedgley could offer movers the best of both worlds in respect to the above qualities. And with a population of just 11,000, the general atmosphere of the village is much quieter than the larger, busier urban areas of the UK.

Situated in the West Midlands, the town has good transport links to cities Birmingham and Wolverhampton, allowing people who work in these places to commute on a daily basis without too much trouble.

Good road routes to both cities mean that drivers can get there easily, while regular buses are available to those who do not use their own vehicle to get to work.

For a relatively small town, Sedgely has a decent range of educational facilities, allowing parents the luxury of choice when deciding on a school for their children to attend.

The area has a total of eight primary schools including the Queen Victoria Primary School, Cotwald End, Alder Coppice, St Chad's and Straits.

In addition to this, there is also the option of secondary education in the area, which is delivered by Dormston and High Arcal schools, among others.

On the weekends parents and children alike are able to make use of Sedgely’s outdoor facilities. The Baggeridge Country Park is perhaps the best example of this and the area contains a cafe, children’s play area and a mini railway.

What’s more, Sedgley Beacon, the highest point in the West Midlands, is a great place to head for a family day out. From the top, panoramic views of the surrounding countryside can be taken in by avid ramblers. This natural landmark is also known for its fossils, adding an educational twist to any days out to the beacon.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801683595-ADNFCR
