Redrow - Wellington Place, WS13
Just forty minutes from Birmingham by train, and an hour and twenty minutes from London, Lichfield couldn’t be better placed for both work and leisure. Set just three miles to the north east, Fradley enjoys all of the benefits of the famous cathedral city, while still enjoying a country location close to the canal.
Coming soon, subject to planning, Wellington Place will feature three and four bedroom homes from Redrow’s Heritage Collection. These also blend the best of both worlds, combining traditional architecture with modern, family friendly interiors.

Fradley is the junction of the Trent & Mersey and Coventry canals, and you can happily while away the afternoon watching the narrowboats negotiate the locks from Fradley Canalside Café. Fradley also has a brand new Village Hall, which is home to a wide range of activities and entertainment. For something different right on your doorstep, try a few laps of Fradley Karting, where you’ll find two tracks to choose from, or head for a more peaceful day out at the National Memorial Arboretum in nearby Alrewas. Lichfield is home to the Friary Grange Leisure Centre, as well as Lichfield Golf and Country Club. For live entertainment, you’ll find a great range of shows at the Garrick Theatre, or you can step back in time with a visit to at Lichfield Cathedral, which dates back to 1200. For the latest movie releases, head along the A38 to the Red Carpet Cinema, or head to Tamworth for the multi-screen Odeon.
Fradley is home to St Stephen’s Primary, which rated ‘good’ on its last Ofsted inspection. The ‘good’ rated All Saints Primary in Alrewas is also within easy reach. Older pupils will need to make the journey into Lichfield, where there is a choice of senior schools, all rated ‘good’, including King Edward VI, Nether Stowe School (a specialist mathematics and computing college) and The Friary School. There are regular busses running through Fradley to all the Lichfield schools. The famous Lichfield Cathedral School can trace its heritage back to the 14th century, and still offers an excellent standard of independent education to this day.
Lichfield offers a choice of shopping, with the Three Spires Shopping Centre in the retail heart of the town, and Lichfield Retail Park on the eastern edge of the city. To the south of Lichfield, you can shop amongst ancient barns for artisan foods, crafts and clothing at the Heart of the Country Shopping Village. Just a short train ride away, Birmingham is a shopaholic’s paradise, with the famous Bull Ring at the centre of an extensive shopping experience featuring all your favourite brands and stores.
