Druids Heath is a village found in the southern axis of Birmingham. The district extends to the South western axis of the famous B14 postcode. The district is known for its large estate that extends to the Brandwood ward of Birmingham’s southern axis. The current location of the estate was previously used as farmland which is beside Bell lane. The estate’s eastern, western and Southern borders are all surrounded by the road leading to Druids.
Originally, when the estate was still in works, it was named Phases 1 and 2 of Bells Lane. The district was essentially formed as an aftermath of the world War. The developmental authorities sought a region that can be developed to allow residents of the over- populous city, to migrate to. Thus, its neighbouring villages are Kings Norton and Kings Heath.
