Stirchley: The Best Place to Live in the Midlands

As named by the Sunday Times and reported on ITV, Stirchley in Birmingham has recently been named the best place to live in the Midlands!

As a proud Stirchley business, we at SCFIT couldn’t be happier with this news!

Why is Stirchley so great?

The suburb of Stirchley is a haven for independent businesses, from ethical, sustainable shopping, to a booming craft beer trade. With only just over 10,000 residents, Stirchley is one of the smallest wards in Brimingham. The small-ness is certainly not a bad thing, though – as it has forged the perfect setting for a community-like feel.

The Sunday Times judges said: “Anyone lucky enough to live in this down-to-earth suburb of Birmingham has some of the city’s best bars, restaurants and cafés – Couch, Eat Vietnam, Caneat – within walking distance of their home, as well as good schools and easy rail connections to the city centre, especially when the new Pineapple Road station opens later this year.

“Community spirit is visible all over Stirchley, from free art clubs in the library to the events at Stirchley Baths, a community centre that hosts cinema nights and a community market.

Loaf, the co-operative bakery and cookery school that was one of the first independents to put Stirchley on the map, does a £1 Stirchley loaf, alongside its famous sourdough, so that everyone can afford good local bread.”
