Great Barr Area Guide


Great Barr was a largely rural area in south Staffordshire, on its border with Warwickshire and is located on the junction of the A34 and A4041 roads. A number of notable individuals began their lives in Great Barr.

They include TV personality Cat Deeley who gained fame in the early 2000s on the children’s show SMTV Live. Celebrated comedy duo Ant & Dec were also regular presenters on the show. Away from the television, Turner Prize-winning artist Gillian Wearing is also a notable former resident of Great Barr.

Red House Park surrounds a former Victorian mansion (now a luxury apartment complex) and provides some fantastic amenities for the local community, such as children’s play areas and beautiful flower beds. When life gets hectic, a stroll through Red House Park is a fantastic stress reliever.

Another great stress reliever is seeing tens of thousands of pounds of extra profit arrive in your bank account after you sell your home. We can help with that one.
