Castle Bromwich

Castle Bromwich is a village situated within the Metropolitan Borough of Solihull in the English county of the West Midlands. It is bordered by the rest of the borough to the south east, North Warwickshire to the east and north east, it constitutes a civil parish, which had a population of 11,857 according to the 2001 census, falling to 11,217 at the 2011 census. The population has remained quite stable since then, it was a civil parish within the Meriden Rural District of Warwickshire until the Local Government Act 1972 came into force in 1974, when it became part of the Metropolitan Borough of Solihull. In 1861, the population was 613; this rose to just over 1,000 in the 1920s, when half of the original parish was ceded to the City of Birmingham for the construction of overspill estates. This caused a drop to 678. Post Second World War estate building in Castle Bromwich increased the population to 4,356 in 1951, 9,205 in 1961 and 15,941 in 1971; the parish was split into two, resulting in the lower 2001 figures.

Castle Bromwich was a Warwickshire village. There has been a settlement here since before Stone Age times. There is evidence. Romans and Normans have settled on this raised piece of land close to a natural ford across the River Tame; the Chester Road which runs through the village follows the line of a drovers' road called the Welsh Road, whose origins lie as an ancient trackway from the pre-Roman era. Bromwich is not named in the Domesday Book in 1086 yet was located within the ancient hundred of Coleshill. Bromwich comes from the old words'brom' for the yellow flowering broom which grows here and'wich' an ancient name for a dwelling or settlement; the motte is some 40 metres in diameter and appears to be a natural feature, heightened by Iron Age settlers by the Normans and once again during the developed of the 1970s to make way for the A452 "Collector Road", which by-passed Castle Bromwich to the north. The "Pimple" commanded the important crossing place of the River Tame, it still remains today, somewhat reduced, sandwiched between the Collector Road.

There was an extensive archaeological dig of the area prior to the development of the Pimple site, discoveries were made that confirmed folk tales of the area. The Pimple was the highest point of an iron-age fortification that encompassed most of Castle Bromwich; the land between the Pimple and Kyters Lane was well defended by several ridge and furrow workings. Other ditches were excavated between Kyters Lane and the Pimple but nothing of consequence was found; the name "Pimple" was used from about the year 1915 onwards, the story that the hill was a Saxon burial ground appeared around 1935, when the spread of dwellings from Washwood Heath began to appear over Hodge Hill. Modern houses now overlook the graveyard; the ridge and furrows have been obliterated. There is the Tame valley from the top of the hill. During the 18th century Castle Bromwich was an important place at the junction of two turnpike roads. Chester Road, an old Roman way which ran from London to Chester, joined the Birmingham to Coleshill road near Castle Bromwich Hall.

There was a toll gate at the junction of Chester Road, School Lane and Old Croft Lane, near the village green. The toll house still exists. In the 1780s stagecoaches travelling from Holyhead to London stopped in the village, as did a horse-drawn bus from Birmingham to Coleshill. There were two survive today; the Midland Railway arrived in 1842 and Castle Bromwich Station was rebuilt in 1901. Boy Scouts used to arrive here and trek the four miles to their major camp at Yorkswood in Kingshurst; the station closed in 1965 and was part-demolished in 1975. Until 1894, the village was a hamlet in the large parish of Aston. Castle Bromwich has had historic ties with both Erdington and Water Orton through administration and land ownership whilst being part of the Parish; the Local Government Act 1894 created a parish of Castle Bromwich from part of the Aston parish not in either Birmingham or Aston Manor urban district. It was part of the Castle Bromwich Rural District from 1894 until 1912, when it became part of the Meriden Rural District.

During the 18th, during the 19th centuries wealthy Birmingham businessmen built large houses in Castle Bromwich. Castle Bromwich has a village green; the land for this, called Seven Acre Green, was given to the village by Viscount Newport in 1895. The War Memorial was erected in 1920 on a small island nearby. There is another green called Whateley Green. Whateley is derived from the Anglo-Saxon for wheatfield clearing; this was the site of a smithy. It had stocks and a whipping post. Whateley Hall was nearby; the ancient duck pond was filled in during the late 1950s. In 1931, a portion of Castle Bromwich land was sold and ceded to the City of Birmingham who built the overspill Chipperfield Road development during 1937–8; this halved the area of the parish of Castle Bromwich, from 2,742 acres to 1,239 acres. During World War II, the occupants of Chipperfield Road pulled down an ancient white-washed farm house thinking it would deny German bomber crews a marker

Since Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was elected in 2015, weed entrepreneurs have been illegally opening up shop all over the city. Though there's no guarantee that Trudeau's plan for legal marijuana will include storefront businesses, these operations are opening daily. Not only do these shops sell weed and more customers are coming through the doors of their local dispensary looking for marijuana edibles. While these stores insist they're providing a medical need to cannabis patients, can a weed soda or a chronic cookie be considered medicinal? We host and medical marijuana patient Damian Abraham does the tough job of trying to figure that out; the Dark Grey Market: Canadian Cannabis - Cannabis in Canada is still illegal. With a new government entering parliament in 2016, the odds of legalization, further criminalization or decriminalization of marijuana coming to fruition are still to be determined, but despite that, black market growers and grey market marijuana dispensaries are more prevalent than ever.
