Persimmon Homes


The pretty civil parish of Penkridge is a countryside idyll away from the hustle and bustle of normal Midlands towns. The medieval main street, lined with historic buildings and the busy Staffs and Worcs canal bobbing with brightly coloured narrowboats – you would hardly believe it’s just 23 miles from Birmingham!

The village high street is packed with independent shops including a bakery, grocers, butchers, celebration cake maker, gift shop as well as a couple of supermarkets on the edge of town. There are pubs, coffee shops, a library and various community halls supporting everything from scouts and guides to bowling and amateur dramatics. Your new home in Penkridge has a choice of schools, a main line railway station and is near the M6 too.

Your new home ideally placed for road and rail

Your new home in Penkridge is close to plenty of cafes and pubs to satisfy your need to eat out and socialise with friends - but for a big night out, head to Birmingham - it takes just 40 minutes by train.
