It is a small area with a shopping centre on the borders of Stechford, Kitts Green, Marston Green and the Radleys. The name originates from the tile production at the former quarry that existed on what is now parkland between St Peter's C of E Church and Shirestone School. Landmarks in the area include Our Lady Help of Christians Catholic Church, a Grade II listed building, which has an associated primary school, and nearby Sheldon Hall, a Grade II* listed building.
