This residential community is set on the Priory Estate with fantastic access to the city centre. It should be a 5-10 min drive into the city centre. The Priory Estate was built in 1958-60 and was the first of the new higher density developments under the post war 'Calthorpe Estate Plan'. Priory Estate can be found in the South East corner of the Calthorpe Estate on the map of Edgbaston.

The Estate was designed by Holland Hobbis, a well-known Birmingham architect. The architectural features of the whole Estate are a matching symmetrical unity, which with its lawns, trees and walks, gives it an interesting mixture of rural atmosphere in a formal urban environment. The three patios separating the Drives were intended to inject a community spirit and provide a 'village green' place for socialising.
