“ Pelsall / Walsall / West Midlands / England „
Pelsall is a small village right in the heart of the West Midlands and it is a very sweet one at that. I grew up here and although I have moved on now to another area, I would have no hesitation in moving back there one day. Most of my family still live here and a lot of my friends have stuck around within the area. It seems like it is one of those villages where everybody knows each other and it is very friendly and here is why.
Ok so now I cant really give you an address for Pelsall but what I can tell you is that the post codes are mainly WS3 ones.
In terms of location the village is good as it is right by Birmingham, Sutton Coldfield, Stafford and Lichfield city. They are all within easy reach and are well worth visiting. It is reached by nice roads but thy do come from quite main ones including the M6 being quite near so you should be able to find it. It is well signposted for miles around and people usually dont have any trouble getting there. Plus when you do you will truly see how small it is so you should be able to find where you want to go.
With regards to traffic Pelsall roads do not usually get that busy, even at weekends. Although when you do try to find a parking space this can become a problem. People who live here know all the back roads and where you can park but if you are visiting for the first time there is plenty of parking in the village. You may just have to wait a few minutes for a space. For passing through though roads are really not a problem at all which is great.
Shopping in Pelsall is quite sweet as it has all of the shops you would expect a quaint little village to have really. There is a co op and a Spar so all food groceries are sorted as they are big stores with a lot of choice. Then there is a sweet bakery, a dry cleaners, a small card and gift shop and then there is a pet store, a fishing store, a DIY store and a butchers. Then over the other side of the village there is a stationary store and a couple of newsagents.
The stores are not massive but they have enough in there to keep people satisfied and are all very sweet stores in terms of size and what they do sell.
As all villages need medicines there are a couple of pharmacies which are well stocked and the people in there are very friendly. Then at one end of the village there is a library where you can apply for membership and there are a lot of books in there considering it does look quite small from the outside. My Nan always finds books she hasnt read before and she goes once a week.
Then in terms of take aways you can choose form Indian, Chinese or fish and chips which are all in close proximity to each other and you can park in the village for them. They are all yummy I have to say as of course I have tried them all over the years. All reasonably priced to.
Ok so now Pelsall also has two very nice Indian restaurants called the Moghul Palace and the Cinnamon Indian which are both lovely so try them both out. They are within easy reach of the village and both have ample parking.
Then every good village must have a good array of pubs and Pelsall has just that. There are quite a few but my favourite is the old house at home which has a warm friendly atmosphere and reasonably priced food and drink. There are others such as the railway and the fingerpost which are nice also.
Pelsall has four massive commons that are extremely nice for taking your dogs a walk over. There is a lovely pond on one which houses some nice swans and the nest common is huge so you can walk for hours. There are several parks dotted around for children to play on to.
Then you have two social clubs which are both always busy, the community centre which houses antique fairs and lots of classes and another social club which you can rent out for events.
Every year Pelsall has a carnival which is the only time when you will see the roads packed and the village full which I quite enjoy. This is truly a time for all Pelsallians (of course I am making that word up there) to come and group together in joy of being in Pelsall village.
With regards to transport, Pelsall has quite a few buses which run through it. There are train stations situated in nearby towns but there isnt a stop anymore in Pelsall.
One more thing I will say is that it is a very pleasant village to live in. There are loads of houses on their own or in estates and of all different price ranges. There are plenty of garages around so you can fill up your car and I think it is genuinely a nice village. I am proud to say that I have lived there and I love going back to visit. It is truly a place where everybody likes to be which of course is just lovely.
Thanks for reading.
Pelsall is a quaint village offering beautiful landmarks to accent the villages history and people.
