Frankley is a village and civil parish in the Bromsgrove district of Worcestershire, near the border with Birmingham. The modern Frankley estate is part of the New Frankley civil parish in Birmingham, and has been part of the city since 1995.[2] The parish has a population of 122.[1]

St Leonards Church[edit]

The 15th-century[3] church building lies to the north of the village.[4] The building is constructed from sandstone in a red and grey colour, until 1965 the tower contained two bells.[4] A new church hall was constructed in 2005.[5]

Frankley services[edit]

The village gives its name to Frankley services, a motorway service area on the M5 motorway to the north west of the village. The services opened with the motorway in 1966.[6]
