Frankley Has Some Interesting Sights
Frankley is an area in Birmingham, and is part of the B32 postcode area. It’s near to Bartley Green and Woodgate, which are both located to the north. Ancient Frankley was formed around the manor of Franchelie, from the Old English ‘Franca’s leah’ which means Franca’s clearing. Frankley Hill and Frankley Beeches offer some stunning views – on a clear day you’ll see the peaks of Berwyn Ranges (a mountain range in the north-east of Wales which are about 70 miles away)! The Beeches are now in care of the national trust, and can be found to the north of Egghill Lane. New Frankley is a municipal housing development, centred on Holly Hill Shopping Parade. There are many houses here and you’ll find a leisure centre, a library and a few schools nearby. The area features St Leonards Church and Frankley Reservoir.
