Let’s take a look at the famous faces of Rubery and Rednal in Birmingham

Rubery and Rednal in south Birmingham provide residents with a quieter place to live in Birmingham - while still being within a short distance from the hustle and bustle of the city centre.

Located on the edge of Birmingham, Rednal is near some lovely green spaces, with the popular rural Lickey Hills Country Park is just a mile and a half south of the neighbourhood, with Rednal Hill being the nearest peak.

Former clay mining pits, later flooded and known locally as 'The Marl Holes', now make up the Callowbrook Park in Rubery, which, alongside St Chads Park, is also one of the two main parks in the village.

Great Park is also in Rubery and is home to the Omniplex Cinema as well as the Hollywood Bowling alley. The two south Birmingham neighbourhoods have also been home to very famous people over the years
