- 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 Warwickshireand is famous as the home of The Belfry golfclub.
Wishaw is located about one mile north of the village of
Curdworthand 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-Mobileto abandon the site.
