It lies about one mile south-west of Polesworth (Where population details can be found), and around 2m east of Tamworth, from which it is separated by the M42 motorway and the Staffordshire county boundary.

Birchmoor Colliery (also known as Cockspur Colliery) was opened in 1860 and closed in 1927.[1]
