The modern village of Dickens Heath can be found approximately two miles from Shirley town centre and four miles from Solihull town centre. The former farmland has been developed over recent years by a number of house builders to provide a modern residential development centred around a central High street and village green.
The Waterside development is located on Rumbush Lane which forms one of the main artery roads through the development which as a whole benefits from close proximity of open countryside and the canal, where canalside walks will take you through to Birmingham Centre and Earlswood Lakes. The village boasts its own junior and infant school, and secondary education can be found at nearby Solihull secondary schools, including Light Hall and Alderbrook. Education facilities are subject to confirmation from the local Education Department.
The main shopping centre of nearby Shirley offers a wide choice of supermarkets, convenience and speciality stores, restaurants and hostelries, and there are frequent bus services along the A34 into Birmingham city centre and Solihull town centre boasting the vibrant and modern Touchwood Development offering shopping facilities and evening entertainment.
Shirley has its own train station in Haslucks Green Road, providing a service to Birmingham city centre and Stratford-upon-Avon, and also close to the village is Whitlocks End Railway Station which also provides a service to these destinations.
Off the main Stratford Road leads Marshall Lake Road boasting the Retail Park, and further down the A34 one will find the Cranmore, Widney, Monkspath and Solihull Business and leisure park, and onto the Blythe Valley Business Park, which can be found at the junction with the M42 motorway, providing access to the midland motorway network. A short drive down the M42 to junction 6 will find the National Exhibition Centre and Birmingham International Airport and Railway Station.
The waterside development was constructed approximately 10 years ago by Parkridge Homes. It is an individual architect design mixed use scheme, designed to take advantage of the canalside location. The development is centred around a water feature with waterfall running to the canal edge. Waters Edge is one of the two premium buildings located overlooking open countryside and the apartment is located on the top floor of the building and is accessed via a lift or staircase from the communal entrance. On the top landing, a secure entrance lobby has two front doors, both of which access the apartment.
