Calthorpe Estate :: Shared Description

The Calthorpe Estate covers 1500 acres to the south of Birmingham City Centre. It is characterised by quiet leafy streets, substantial 19th century Victorian villas and some more modern housing, and, unlike other parts of inner-city Birmingham, a complete lack of industry. With 25% of the estate being open space, it is considered a very desirable area in which to live; half of the total area is part of the Edgbaston Conservation Area believed to be the largest in the country. The estate owes this status to the first Lord Calthorpe, owner of Edgbaston Hall, who had a clause inserted into the Act of Parliament authorising the construction of the Worcester Canal prohibiting industrial development. Ownership of the estate still remains with the Calthorpe family.
