Located at the end of the Northfield to Sedgley ridge Cotteridge had some significant early settlements at Middleton Hall, Rowheath, Breedon Cross and Lifford. Cotteridge was in Worcestershire until the Local Authorities Order of 1911 transferred much of the ancient parish of King's Norton into Warwickshire as part of the Greater Birmingham Scheme. This fine selection of images captures these changes.Paper making, chemical works, and metal industries grew up along the canals and were served by many wharfs. Not many villages can boast having four railway stations! Cotteridge was made into a thriving local centre by the surrounding industry and transport network. The park holds an annual festival of music, arts, and dance. Cotteridge is a busy communication centre with a thriving community spirit.
