Introducing Nechells We Are Heading

NechellsWeAre is a digital platform for engaging residents in their place, creating a space where people can engage and connect with the whole neighbourhood and its community.

About Nechells Heading

Nechells is a ward based neighbourhood that borders Birmingham’s city centre. It has a population of just under 14,000. The neighbourhood is part of the Ladywood district of Birmingham.

History of Nechells Heading

Historic maps of Nechells going back to the mid 1700s show the area was once a village green surrounded by a few lanes and fields.

During the 19th Century, things changed and Nechells was chosen as the location for powering Birmingham’s gas and electricity supplies.

On the site of the now Star City was once the Nechells Power Station, commonly known as the Prince’s Power Station.

Between Saltley Road and Fowler Street once stood Birmingham’s first state school, Goodrick Street School, built in 1873. This is now marked by a plaque.

Evidence of Nechells historic past can still be found. For example, the magnificent Grade II Listed Nechells Bath can be found on the corner of Nechells Park Road and Aston Church Road.

Nechells Baths
Nechells today, is home to a rich culture and a community representative of a modern city. Several organisations are active in Nechells to support the needs of the local community and this includes Nechells POD and Free at last.
