Winson Green

Winson Green is a loosely-defined area in the west of the city of Birmingham, England. It is part of the ward of Soho.

It is the location of HM Prison Birmingham (known locally as Winson Green Prison or "the Green") and City Hospital (formerly Dudley Road Hospital).

The area has a very multi-racial population, with large Afro-Caribbean and Asian communities. R&B singer, Jamelia was raised in the area.

The Birmingham Canal Navigations Main Line Canal passes through the area, as does the former LMS main line between Birmingham and Wolverhampton; and the Midland Metro, with a stop at Winson Green Outer Circle, connecting with the Birmingham Outer Circle bus route.
