Location

A Jewess Ltd is located in Quarry Bank, near Brierley Hill in the West Midlands.

Quarry Bank is a village in the Metropolitan Borough of Dudley in the West Midlands which exists in the Brierley Hill DY5 postcode. An unusual feature of Quarry Bank is its long steep High Street, hence “Bank”, which slopes from the bottom end where it meets the neighbouring town of Cradley Heath to the top at the Junction with Thorns Road. Clinging to the hillside and varying from very steep to almost flat, it has changed very little, except for modernisation of shop fronts. The shopping area is unusually busy and vibrant with many small independent businesses.

Quarry Bank is situated just off the busy main A461 between Stourbridge and Dudley with other roads providing connections to neighbouring locations. It is also served by numerous bus services and there is a bus station situated at the Merry Hill Shopping Centre which is close by, there are several bus stops along the High Street.

A Jewess Limited is perfectly situated in an elevated position and nicely presented and maintained with clear visible signage. There is private off-road parking in a driveway to the right-hand side if the premises, there is also parking in the local community centre car park which is just around the corner as well as on street parking in the neighbouring streets.
