Wishaw, Warwickshire

Wishaw, Warwickshire

Wishaw is a village and civil parish (as Wishaw and Moxhull) in the north-west of Warwickshire, England. It is located within the district of North Warwickshire and is famous as the home of The Belfry golf club.

Wishaw is located about one mile north of the village of Curdworth and about three miles east of the town of Sutton Coldfield, in the West Midlands.

In 2003, residents claimed that a mobile phone mast at the centre of the village was the cause of a local cancer cluster [http://www.bbc.co.uk/insideout/westmidlands/series6/phone_masts.shtml] . The mast was felled by unknown vandals in November 2003 and subsequent pressure against plans to replace it led operator T-Mobile to abandon the site.
