Bournville, Birmingham: Model Village to Garden Suburb

Out of Stock. Delivery time unknown.


Bournville began as a ?Model Village? in 1895 and has since grown into a large garden suburb. Started by the Quaker chocolate manufacturer George Cadbury, this seminal scheme was handed over to a charitable Trust in 1900. The Trustees have carefully controlled the growth of the estate, which now covers more than a thousand acres and contains some 7,600 houses. The aims of the Trust remain very similar to those established by Cadbury, and Bournville was and is still renowned for its clever site planning, good quality housing and excellent landscaping.
