Amberley Green is a 'T' shaped cul-de-sac leading off the Hamstead Road. It is generally considered to be part of Hamstead Village.

There are four car parking areas with garage blocks.

At one end is a childrens playground which has become unsociable lately and agreement has been made to create a new childrens playground at the nearby Tanhouse centre and build a few new houses, no details have been released yet.

The Walsall to Birmingham railway runs across the top of the Green separating it from the RSPB Nature Reserve.

The Green was built on the site of the Hamstead Colliery which was one of the deepest mines in the area and closed in March 1965. The new estate was called the Hazelrigg estate by the developers.
