Finchfield Finchfield is a small leafy residential district on the western fringes of Wolverhampton. It was until 1974 a district of Staffordshire and remains within a mile or two of the South Staffordshire border and only a short distance from the Shropshire border. Within Finchfield there are several small shops and stores, details of which can be found in the "Out & About" link to the left.
There are also, within walking distance interesting places to visit - such as Bantock House Museum and Wightwick Manor or you can take a leisurely walk along the Valley Park Nature Reserve, the route of an old disused railway, which will take you back into Wolverhampton, where you can pick up several Canal Towpath walkways or out into South Staffordshire towards the village of Wombourne and the well known Bratch Locks.
