- Old Oscott
Old Oscott is an area of Great Barr, Birmingham, England (previously in the parish of Handsworth, Staffordshire). The suburb forms a triangle bounded to the north by Pheasey, to the west by Perry Beeches, and to the east by Kingstanding. The Birmingham City Council ward that covers the area is called simply Oscott.
Old Oscott is not a very well known name, and people tend to simply treat the district as part of Great Barr, or consider it to be the western "private" half of Kingstanding.
The area was mostly developed between 1920 and 1960, with a mix of both private and council housing.
