about Bromsgrove

Bromsgrove is a former market town in Worcestershire which is about 16 miles North East of Worcester, 13 miles South West of Birmingham city centre and 120 miles North West of London. Although only 13 miles outside of Birmingham Bromsgrove is close to the countryside attractions of the Lickey Hills, the Clent Hills, the Waseley Hills and there is also a statue of Alfred Edward Housman in the high street. A E Housman was an English classical scholar and poet, and best known to the general public for his cycle of poems “A Shropshire Lad”.
 
Bromsgrove is also home to Bromsgrove School, one of Britain’s finest independent schools which was founded in 1553 and Bromsgrove Rugby Football Club is one of the oldest rugby union clubs in the country dating back to 1872.
 
The Worcester and Birmingham Canal which runs close to Bromsgrove, is a destination for leisure activities such as walking and coarse fishing and there are several narrowboat hire centres situated in nearby villages. The Tardebigge lock flight, with 30 locks, is the longest in the UK. The Lickey Incline is the steepest sustained main-line railway incline in Great Britain and is situated just outside Bromsgrove. 
 
Bromsgrove was home for many years to the world-famous "Bromsgrove Guild", a company of craftsmen who produced many fine works of sculpture, ironwork, etc., including the gates of Buckingham Palace
