The parish is to the south of the West Midlands conurbationmarker, and apart from the large village of Hockley Heath itself (which is at the extreme south-eastern corner of the parish), includes Cheswick Greenmarker, Dickens Heathmarker, Tidbury Greenmarker, Salter Street, and Whitlock's End. According to the 2001 census, the parish had a population of 6,771.
