Low Hill


Low Hill

Low Hill is a housing estate in Wolverhampton, West Midlands, England. It is north-east of Wolverhampton city centre, within the Bushbury South and Low Hill ward. Built in the late 1920s, it is one of the most deprived parts of central England with unemployment and crime levels high, thanks to its many street gangs that populate the surrounding area. The estate is also locally famous for the extravagant Christmas decorations, which can be seen on many houses in the area.

Unemployment is also high in Low Hill, and many of the local residents who are in employment are in low-paid jobs.

The centre of the estate is situated around Showell Circus, in the area around the Bushbury Arms public house that was built during the 1930s.
