Property description

A fantastic 3/4 double bedroom townhouse ideally located just moments from Bearwood High Street. The property has undergone extensive refurbishment in parts, including a new kitchen and bathroom and complete redecoration throughout. There is also street permit parking available.

The name Bearwood derives from Old English. Bearu might be translated as a 'grove', but the implication is that this was open woodland used as pig-pasture; wudu simply means a 'wood'. The name therefore seems to to describe a wood in a woodland area where pigs were grazed.
Alternatively, the name may be interpreted as 'bear wood'. Bears are thought to have become extinct in Britain by the end of the Roman occupation and before the Anglo-Saxon adventus. Had any survived locally it would be natural to record this as a significant element in the name of a wood. Certainly there was a wide area of dense forest in the Midlands in early Anglo-Saxon times. The reference to pigs, though perhaps less appealing, is more likely.
The name referred only to the woodland until the end of the 19th century when housing development began along Bearwood Road. And it may be that the district derives its name from the road rather than from the wood itself. Bearwood Road is now a busy shopping street just beyond Birmingham City boundary with easy bus transportation links into the city centre via Hagley Road (A456), one of the main arterial routes into Birmingham from the M5 at Junction 3.
