About this site

I love Rowley Regis is a community website for the town of Rowley Regis, in The Black Country. The site is for people who love their local town and want to share news and information with others.

It has been set up to help the people who live in Rowley Regis to get involved more in their local community.

What do you class as Rowley Regis?

There’s many people who think Rowley Regis is just Rowley Village – but it in fact includes the wards of Blackheath, Cradley Heath and Old Hill, and of course – Rowley. Check out the links for each ward for useful information and maps from Openly Local.

Rowley Regis became a municipal borough in it’s own right (1933) before joining with Oldbury and Smethwick in 1966 to become Warley County Borough which merged with West Bromwich in 1974 to become Sandwell Council (thanks Wikipedia!).

Map of Rowley Regis

It’s difficult to pinpoint on a map exactly where Rowley Regis is ie. where it starts and finishes – well, I say difficult it’s probably really easy to some people but mapping stuff is beyond me at the moment, so I’ve knocked up this 2 mile radius image on a Google Map.

The map below shows a 2 mile radius of the centre of Rowley Village – well I say the centre of Rowley Village but it’s not the exact centre of “the village” itself but the centre of the words on the Google Map.

I’m sure there’ll be people who will disagree with this representation of Rowley Regis – feel free to add a comment and your feedback below.
