About Halesowen

Halesowen is an industrial town which flourished in the 20th century through the production of electrical apparatus, agricultural implements and weldless tubing. In recent decades the town has undergone considerable rebuilding and modernization.

It's greatest landmark is the impressive Norman church dedicated to St.John the Baptist, this shows later Perpendicular work together with an outer aisle built late in the 19th century. A prominent feature of the church is its 15th century tower, this rises with its spire and three tiers of gabled lights from the centre of the nave. It is inclined more to the west than the original Norman tower which collapsed.

The churchyard has several old tombs and graves, amongst them is the last resting place of William Shenstone, the poet, who lived in the area. A monument to him is situated in the north aisle of the church.

For several centuries Halesowen was a farming region and despite the spread of urban sprawl the region still has nearby open beauty spots. There are lovely walks and good views from the Clent Hills, Hagley Hall with its pretty parkland is worth a visit, to the north is Dudley with its famous castle. To the south-west is the famous glass making town of Stourbridge which stands close to the waters of the rejuvenated Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal.
