Persimmon Homes


Known as the historic capital of the Black Country, Dudley has been enjoying a recent multi-million-pound regeneration programme that has seen a new enterprise zone for business and innovation created at its centre as well as a whole new branch of the new Midland Metro Line. Aside from a bright future, Dudley is proud of its rich industrial past.

Not far from your new home in Dudley is the Black Country Living Museum and the Stourbridge Glass Quarter. There are also limestone mines at the Dudley Canal & Caverns as well as the landmark Dudley Zoo and Castle. Merry Hill shopping centre has 240 retailers with over 50 places to eat – but if you want more, Birmingham City Centre is only 10 miles away from your new build home in Dudley.

To enjoy time out from your new build, Dudley has several nature reserves nearby – Sheepwash, Barrow Hill, Cotwall End, Buckpool, Saltwells and Bumble Hole. If you want to escape to the country for a day out, you’ll be just a stone’s throw from the lovely countryside of Shropshire, the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and the Severn Valley.

Dudley has great road links

A fantastic place to visit - and live!

Whether you're walking the historic Dudley Castle, enjoying the local zoo or digging into Dudley's rich mining history at the Black Country Living Museum, there's plenty to do from your new Dudley home. If you love football, West Bromwich Albion Football Club is nearby, but if you'd rather switch footballs for chocolate squares, Cadbury World at Bourneville could be your spiritual new home!
