Sparkhill is located at the heart of three places, Springfield, Hall Green, and Sparkbrook, in the southern part of Birmingham. It is named after a small stream flowing from Moseley and joining with the River Cole at Small Heath.
The name of the hill beside the stream was blended accordingly with the name of the stream, Sparkbrook, what we call Sparkhill today. Most parts of the stream are situated underground, thus, the natural beauty and the scenic attractions can be predicted easily. Tourists often opt for a hire car to visit the uncountable number of sights and the picturesque landscapes adjoining Sparkhill.
Enjoy a visit to the Cherry Arbour, a place where the development of the area had first started. You will see various buildings with different designs, architecture and patterns. To see more of these style buildings go to Stony Lane or Durham Road where there are palatial houses, constructed for the wealthy class in the 19th century. The Sparkhill Library, formerly the Yardley District Council is worth a visit. It tells the story of the older constructions of the area.
Sparkhill is a place filled with a variety of culture, as immigrants from many countries had settled over here. The graveyard of St. John's Church possesses graves of the people of the nearby BSA factory, who died in World War I. A memorial to them was constructed, and visitors are permitted inside to pay their respects. Relax with a refreshing drink at the Mermaid Inn, constructed in the 1600's, this restaurant and bar was renovated by Holland W. Hobbiss, a local sculptor, after a blazing fire.
There's so much to see and do in Sparkhill that if you decide to hire a vehicle you will be able to tour the area in your own time and even travel further afield to view other sites of interest in the surrounding landscapes, which public transport will not get you to.
