The Austin Village – Lunchtime Talk

Learn more about this unique area of Birmingham built with imported, prefabricated bungalows and still inhabited over 100 years later.

Starting with an introduction about Lord Herbert Austin and his choice to open a car factory in Longbridge, find out why he also decided to build housing for the factory workers and how the ensuing village developed.
