Living in Little Aston: The Local Area Guide

Located at the very bottom of Staffordshire, Little Aston is often regarded as one of the most affluent and luxurious places in the Lichfield Area, with its relatively small population consisting of professional footballers, models and movie stars. Indeed, its list of famous residents has included the likes of Roy Hodgson, Peter Schmeichel and Sir Roger Moore.

Although officially a district of Lichfield, the village is far closer to, and holds stronger local ties with, the town of Sutton Coldfield in the district of Birmingham City. Due to this, the residents of Little Aston enjoy a sense of geographical flux, further developing the village’s sense of self-identity and exclusivity. The area itself is comprised of 9 distinct residences. Each of these have grown with the increasing population, now comprising large detached homes and gated apartment blocks.

Aside from the architectural beauty of the houses, Little Aston Borders the Sutton Park Nature Reserve; 2,400 acres of wild woods, grassland and lakes, where a variety of animals live undisturbed, including wild ponies.
