Wythall is a village and civil parish in the Bromsgrove District, in the north-east corner of the county of Worcestershire, England. Wythall parish borders Solihull and Birmingham, and had a population of 11,377 in the UK census of 2001.Wythall village is around 7 miles south of Birmingham City Centre (a 20-minute train journey from Wythall railway station) along Alcester Road. There are many 18th century buildings on this road including the old post office and school building. The Wythall Institute is still the home of the WI today. The civil parish of Wythall includes Drake's Cross, Hollywood and Headley Heath. Wythall village itself is generally the area covered by the Wythall South ward, population 1,400 (although the Silver Street area is also usually included), however even this area includes the subsidiary settlements of Inkford and Tanner's Green. The easternmost section of Wythall village, around the railway station, was traditionally referred to as Grimes Hill.St Mary's Anglican church has a roof and stair turret added by W.H. Bidlake.There are two primary schools within Wythall parish, the Coppice Primary School in Drakes Cross, now headed by Bill Heptinstall, who started in 2007 and Meadow Green Primary School in Wythall village, now headed by Nathan Jones, who started in September 2009. There was previously a school in Silver Street from circa 1875 to 1992. This catered for all school children in Wythall and the surrounding area, after the initial primary age, until a growing population required more school development. Woodrush High School in Drakes Cross opened in the 1958 for children aged 11 and over, and Shawhurst Infants School (next door to Woodrush) opened around 1967, leaving what was by now called Silvermead School as a junior school. Meadow Green School opened in the early 1960s to give additional junior and infant provision. During 1991-92 an extension was built on Shawhurst Infants School, and its development became the Coppice Primary School. The Silvermead site was then closed, although many of its buildings have been converted into homes as Silvermead Court. The Coppice Primary School became an Academy in December 2011 and now is the largest primary school in the area and in 2012 started to develop into a three form entry school. Wythall is in Worcestershire. Plan my United Kingdom trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
