About Moorpool Allotments
The Estate was established in 1907 by John Nettlefold, first chairman of Birmingham Housing Committee and member of the Guest Keen Nettlefold (GKN) family.
It formed part of the Garden City concept shared by the Cadbury family in Bournville, to provide low density housing centred on a community hall and with many interspersed green spaces, at a time when the majority of inner city housing was of a crowded back-to-back design.
In 2006, the Estate had its conservation status raised to preserve this unique garden suburb and started its centenary celebrations in 2007, commemorating one hundred years since the first sod cutting by Margaret Nettlefold.
