Kings Heath is a suburban district of Birmingham, England. It is situated on the southern axis of Birmingham which is approximately four miles from the town ‘s center. It was originally located in Worcestershire and found after Moseley and Alcester road.
Following the development of roads within the Birmingham and Alcester region, the district was gradually recognized as a hamlet in the early 18th century. The development of those roads led to the expansion of the region as modern houses and farmlands sprung up.
