Grass from chocolate 2-Bournville, Birmingham
Three views in Willow Road, Bournville. The Cadburys opened their factory in 1879 and embarked on a programme of house building for their workers and 143 cottages were built to the design of architect George Gadd. In 1900 George Cadbury formed the Bournville Village Trust and these houses date from the early 1900s - the architect was William Harvey. The First World War memorial was placed here in 1923. The influence of the Cadburys still persists - there is no pub in Bournville. In 2010 the City Council removed a number of trees from Willow Road and failed to replace them on grounds of cost, to the great disgust of residents.
