Also, not far away are:

  • Smestow School (Sports College)
  • Colton Hills Community School

There is also a youth centre; the YWCA.

Warstones has many facilities such as a library and many shops.

It is the location of some of Wolverhampton's first post World War II council houses, built around Enville Road in the second half of the 1940s.[1]

In the past few years[when?] there have been some problems in the area. Gang culture was a major issue. West Midlands Police tackled the problem by putting a curfew on the area for a short while and putting a police station in the area.

Notable former residents of Warstones Estate include Slade guitarist Dave Hill[2] and journalist and writer Caitlin Moran[3].
