Winterbourne Lunchtime Talk: The History of the Moor Pool Estate

About this event

Join MPHT trustee, Jules Bellingham, for a lunchtime talk at Winterbourne House and Garden, part of the University of Birmingham.

The Moor Pool Estate was the vision of John Sutton Nettlefold, and built on the principles of providing low density housing centred around a community hall, interspersed with green spaces and provision of recreational and sporting facilities to encourage social cohesion.

Now a designated Conservation Area it remains a fine example of a Garden Suburb built in a humble Arts & Crafts style to provide affordable housing in a semi-rural environment.

This talk will explore the origins of the Estate and Nettlefold’s vision initially as co-partnership housing scheme run by Harborne Tenants Ltd from origins to today.

Tickets are £6.50 for members of Winterbourne, £12.50 for non-members. Ticket price includes admission to the house and garden. More information and booking: The History of Moor Pool Estate – Lunchtime Talk – Winterbourne House and Garden
