Four Dwellings

B32 - Grid reference SP000842

First record 1834

So-named by 1834 after four houses standing in close proximity in an otherwise unpopulated area known as Worlds End near Quinton. Standing near the junction of Dwellings Lane and Quinton Road West, Four Dwellings Farm was demolished in 1940 and Four Dwellings Council School was built on the site. This was a rural area planned for housing development by the City Council from 1920 onwards.
