Tyburn is a relatively young ward, having been formed out of the old Kingsbury Ward in 2004, and takes its name from the Tyburn Road that passes through the length of the ward. It comprises the areas of Castle Vale, Birches Green, Erdington Hall and Pype Hayes and is bordered by the M6 motorway.
Tyburn also has its origins in the Middle Ages, with Erdington Hall being the site of a manor house until the 20th century. Castle Vale was originally called Berwood, only receiving its new name as a result of a competition for the new housing estate built there in the 60s. Tyburn is also home to Pypes Hayes Hall, the seat of the Bagot family which sits in Pype Hayes Park.
One of the largest housing estates on Pype Hayes, has seen much redevelopment, which has significantly transformed the area.
