Acocks Green Ward

Acocks Green Baptist Church

Acocks Green, a socially mixed Ward, lies about four miles South East of Birmingham City Centre. It has a recognisable centre itself, known as 'The Green' which is at the junction of the Warwick Road and three local through routes. The 'natural' boundary of Acocks Green can be seen as the canal along the Northern edge, the city boundary along the East side, then Lakey Lane as far as Broomhall Crescent. From there, a line can be drawn to Fox Hollies Leisure Centre and continued along York Road to the North Warwickshire Railway Line. To complete the boundary, the railway forms a barrier, as far as the canal. This area forms a natural community, easily understood by local people.

The ward has several supermarkets and commercially is an important shopping centre. It has eight primary schools and two secondary schools, and a variety of places of worship.

Acocks Green also has several historic buildings, including Grade II listed cottages in Arden Road, a Grade II listed Baptist Church (see picture), and Church Hall.(Source: Acocks Green History Society)(Copyright Photograph of Baptist Church - Anthony Spettigue 2004)
