Himley is a pleasant village and parish, five miles from Wolverhampton. Although Himley lies at the edge of the West Midland commuter belt, it retains a village community life.
Dramatic increases in road traffic during the 60's and 70's began to threaten the life of the village but a by-pass completed in the 1980's, that extended the Himley Road around the village to rejoin the Bridgnorth Road near to Wombourne, restored the rural charm.
The village includes the Himley Country Club, two very popular public houses/restaurants and its grand object of attraction is Himley Hall and Park.
The magnificent hall is situated in a beautiful park, which is popular for weddings. The hall has gardens by 'Capability Brown' and the park is well stocked with deer, has a sailing lake and a model railway.
The beautiful and extensive wood called Baggeridge, adjoins the park, and is well stocked with pheasant.
