Bournville and Cotteridge Places for People

Oak Tree Lane Modal Filter

The Cadbury brothers intended Bournville to be a pleasant and quiet neighbourhood for the people that lived in it. It has many historic low traffic neighbourhoods, and there are footpaths cutting through between houses everywhere. The Cadbury brothers were keen "cyclers" (to use the contemporary word), but cycling infrastructure wasn't really a thing, because it wasn't needed. Cycling simply outweighed driving as a mode of transport (see photo at the bottom).
