The current area of Batchley was originally a housing estate built following WW2 in order to provide affordable housing, and has continued to expand in order to meet demand right up to the present day.
Batchley has a range of houses and properties available, and is home to a diverse population, as is most of Redditch. The area features several parks and green spaces, along with a fishing lake.
The area has a selection of first and middle schools, with good transport links to high schools and colleges elsewhere in the town.
Whilst Batchley has several local shops, including a Tesco express, it is also very close to Redditch town centre, which is home to many more shops and attractions.
Because of its position in the north-west of the town, both the M5 and M42 are easily accessible, along with direct routes to neighbouring Bromsgrove and Birmingham. Batchley is also very close to Redditch train station, which is situated in the town centre. Trains from Redditch leave regularly for Bimingham New Street, and it is only a 20-minute journey.
