Roman Heights Phase 2
View Full development
While its name reflects the Roman road that runs by the development, Roman Heights also offers excellent access to modern transport. Lichfield Trent Valley station, less than a mile away, is a stop for services between Crewe and London Euston, with trains approximately once an hour and travel into the capital taking just over an hour and a half. The station’s high-level platform is the terminus of the services to Redditch via Birmingham, with New Street station around 40 minutes away.
Close to the A38 and just four miles from the M6 Toll motorway, Roman Heights is close to frequent bus services serving Burton upon Trent and several local villages as well as Lichfield city centre. The bus trip into Lichfield takes just over ten minutes.
There is a well equipped children’s playground a few minutes walk from the development, and superb opportunities for walking in the local countryside and enjoying the colourful pleasure craft on the Coventry Canal. The Plough, in Huddlesford, is a traditional, family friendly country pub and restaurant which can be reached by a pleasant canalside walk of less than a mile.
While plans exist to bring more amenities into Streethay, including health services, a leisure centre and a primary school, there are excellent facilities currently available in Lichfield. Attractions at the Garrick Theatre, in the city centre, range from musicals and drama to comedy and dance. The city’s leisure attractions include superb open spaces like the beautiful gardens and sports facilities at Beacon Park, close to the library and museum, and Stowe Pool, popular with anglers. Friary Grange Leisure Centre includes a swimming pool, gym and sports hall, and nearby opportunities for more adventurous days out include Karting at Fradley Park and motorsports at Curborough Sprint Course.
Lichfield’s charming traditional shopping streets, with their local traders, speciality shops, pubs and restaurants, are complemented by high street names and fashion outlets at the Three Spires Shopping Centre. Local supermarkets include a large Tesco, which also offers recycling facilities for most household packaging, including glass, and there is also another recycling site for larger items around a mile away.
Roman Heights is in the catchment area for Scotch Orchard Primary, St Chad’s C of E Primary and Nether Stowe School. All three were rated ‘Good’ in their most recent Ofsted report. Greenhill Health Centre, near the large Tesco, incorporates two large medical practices and a Co-op pharmacy, and there are several dental
surgeries in the city.
