Birch ave is a quiet place to live, it is part council and part private, It is right on the edge of holly hayes wood 200 yards which is an ancient woodland with bluebells and a brook, perfet for walking and lovely if you have children or dogs.

The house prices have not risen or dropped within the last several years, and the houses are large and were built for the returning soldiers from the war by the POW'S. 

The primary schools are good both catholic and c of e, and the high school is fantastic, - the local college GSCE - is getting better but you are also in the catchment aera for delisle, and also slightly out of cathcment for Ashby, which accepts children from whitwick, also their is 2 private schools locally as well.

Their is an abbundance of pubs and various denominiations of churches with ongoing communities within them all within walking distance.

Despite being near a brook, this part of the village has never flooded. were higher up.

I have lived on Birch Ave for 10 years, and it is lovely. the kids love it, it has loads of wildlife and birds, and great walks from the front of your doorstep.
