Bromsgrove (c) Philip Halling

Bromsgrove is an industrial town caught up in the urban spillover from Birmingham, but it does hold some interest for the casual visitor. The church, reached by a set of stone steps, is topped by a 15th-century steeple rising 200 feet.

Within the church are monuments to the Talbot family, lords of the manor, whose manor house is 2 miles away. The manor has a surviving Tudor chapel, but the major part of the building was rebuilt after a disastrous fire in 1710.

By far the most popular visitor attraction in the area is the Avoncroft Museum of Historic Buildings, where you can see over 25 examples of historic buildings rescued from destruction and reassembled in one place.
