Streethay lies along the A5127, close to its junction with the A38, approximately one and half miles east of Lichfield city centre. Streethay is easily accessible by a variety of transport modes yet remains peaceful making it an attractive place to live.
It is situated within easy reach of the M6 Toll and the local railway station (Lichfield Trent Valley) has two lines on upper and lower levels. The Cross City Line (north) on the upper level serves all stations to Birmingham and Longbridge beyond. The West Coast Mainline on the lower level runs between London Euston and Glasgow Central.
The Coventry Canal, which leaves the Trent and Mersey Canal at Fradley Junction and runs 38 miles to Coventry, runs past Streethay. Streethay Wharf along this canal provides moorings for over 65 boats as well as boat repairs, painting and fuel.
The Anchor public house in Streethay was a regular social venue for all RAF personnel at Lichfield during WWII and continues to be popular today.
Children in the village have a large playing field complete with goal posts, swings, slide and a variety of other equipment.
