Lutley Mill

History[edit]

Historically a part of Worcestershire,[1] Lutley was one of the possessions of the Priests of Wolverhampton and the only one of their possessions outside Staffordshire. Unlike most of the rest of Halesowen, Lutley remained in Worcestershire, when the manor of Halesowen was transferred to Shropshire.[2] This also applied to Cradley and Warley Wigorn.[3][4] The ownership resulted in the manor of Lutley being with Codsall and various other places part of the manor of the Deanery of Wolverhampton.

The original village has become a hamlet with a few farms at grid reference SO940830, while the southern portion of the township at Hayley Green has been built up in modern times, as the town of Halesowen expanded. This became as ribbon development along Hagley Road, but expanded in the 1980s with the development of Portsdown Road and the roads leading off it.

Community faciliites[edit]

The area contains Lutley Primary School and the Lutley Community Centre.
