Rubery

Rubery is a suburb in the very south-western tip of Birmingham and lies within Worcestershire rather than the West Midlands like most of the city. In total Rubery is nine miles from the city centre and grew as a suburb in the early 20th century following the development of the Longbridge automotive factory. Today the suburb provides residents with excellent transport links and amenities such as shops, schools, a cinema, and gym and Cofton Park, 135 acres of wonderful green space. Rubery is popular with commuters who can take advantage of the 20 minute journey from nearby Longbridge station to the city centre, or the road connections to the M5 and M42 that are only a moment away.

Rubery is both a town and a suburb of Birmingham split between the Bromsgrove District of Worcestershire and Birmingham itself. The main arterial route to the South West the A38 leads from Birmingham city centre through Rubery, Bromsgrove and Worcester.

Rubery lies in a valley between the Waseley and Lickey Hills and the word Rubery comes from the old English word "Rowbery" meaning “a rough hill”. There are some beautiful parks and areas of outstanding natural beauty covering both Waseley and Lickey Hills. The Lickey Hills and surrounds were first occupied in Roman times and in medieval times were used as a royal hunting reserve. The hills were so steep there was a drinking fountain and horse trough at the top for use by horses drawing coaches. A massive obelisk is sited at the top of the hill “The Monument” in commemoration of the 6th Earl of Plymouth, the family owned most of the surrounding land for over 250 years.

Another feature of Rubery is the new development at Great Park on the site of the old hospital. In the centre of this is a complex with multi screen cinema and other entertainments as well as a supermarket megastore.
