Wake Green, Birmingham

Wake Green is a historical area in south Birmingham, England between Moseley, Kings Heath, and Hall Green. Like nearby Sarehole it is no longer a postal address. It used to straddle the parish boundary of Yardley (Worcestershire at the time) and Kings Norton and was an area of "waste land", that is, land which had not yet been cultivated. In the past it had a post mill (windmill) – Wake Green Mill – mentioned in a deed of 1664 when it was in the possession of Richard Grevis.
