Home

Barnt Green is a popular, semi-rural village of some 728 households in the north of the Bromsgrove District of Worcestershire. The Parish is bounded on its north-west side by the wooded Lickey Hills and to the east by the Upper and Lower Bittell Reservoirs.

The village centre contains many destination shops and services. Key services such as doctors, dentists, a post office, restaurants, take-away food outlets and several small businesses are also centrally located in the village.

Residents are well served by a wide range of community services, clubs and societies including churches, sports and social clubs, an excellent school and several pre-school playgroups and nurseries.
