Suburbanisation in Birmingham No. 2

Middle Suburbs - Moseley and King's Heath

The middle suburbs of Moseley and King's Heath developed during the inter-war years between the 1920s and 1930s.  These two areas were exisiting villages, in Victorian times that were swallowed up by the urban sprawl of Birmingham.  Both had train stations, good road connections to the CBD, and village centres that reflected a village, and are seen as "urban villages" today.  They were the the 1920s versions of the commuter settlement (i.e. Knowle and Dorridge).
