  1. Bearwood, West Midlands

    Bearwood is the southern part of Smethwick, in Sandwell, West Midlands, England, and north of the A456 Hagley Road, and the wider locality extending into North Edgbaston in Birmingham. Bearwood Hill was the original name of the High Street from Smethwick Council House to Windmill Lane. The border at the Shireland Brook where Portland Road becomes Shireland Road is signed "Bearwood". Bearwood is included in Abbey Ward in Sandwell Metropolitan Borough. In 1903, Bearwood Ward in Smethwick extended from Hagley Road to Smethwick High Street and included part of Cape Hill. The Bearwood telephone exchange area marked out by the 0121-429 numbers extends as far east as Harborne Walkway. Bearwood, like many areas of the West Midlands conurbation, has a local sense of place, although it has become absorbed into Smethwick proper. Many locals still use the term "The Bear" especially referring to "The Bear Hotel" located in Bearwood. An old map of the 18th century mentions 'The Bear of Smithwick'.
