Kings Norton is a suburban district of Birmingham, England. It was originally located in Worcestershire and currently a council within Birmingham city ward under Birmingham ‘Government, England. The district is approximately 6. 5 miles off the South-western axis of the town’ s center and is 1. 5 miles away from the northern border of Worcestershire.
According to the history of the district, Kings Norton originated from the old English word ‘Nor + tun’ which means northern settlement and was controlled by a King when the district was in the extreme northern axis of Bromsgrove within the axis of Worcestershire.
Prior to 1066, the halls alongside others across Birmingham were in the control of Earl Edwin who was an Earl of Anglo- Saxon in Mercia. However, following the defeat of the Earl by the vikings army, the latter sought control but were defeated by King Harold. A couple of years later, they came under the control of Earl Edwin who ensured it was part of the Royal family’s property until the early 19th century.
Following the construction of Birmingham and Worcester canal, the town of Birmingham was connected to the Severn River. This led to the early development of the axis though some sections organized protest as they felt they were under-represented.
Thus, after construction of the district’s railway in the 19th century, Kings Norton alongside neighbouring districts developed tremendously. The Bournville industry which was located on the northern side of the district was also instrumental.
In the 20th century, the district further expanded after introduction of several public and private housing. However, in early 2000s, most of the houses were demolished after they deteriorated.
As regards Education, the district has over seven schools. The major means of transportation in the district is through road and railway. The buses ply the routes of Redditch and Birmingham. Its rail station is situated at Cross-city and connects to other districts within and outside Birmingham.
