Selly Manor dates from medieval times and was once a prosperous house, it declined from 1695 and was devided
into three dwellings. Gradually falling into disuse it was rescued by George Cadbury, founder of Bournville, who moved it from nearby
Selly Oaks to his new Bournville garden village where it stands today. The cruck-framed hall, Minworth Greaves, from Sutton Coldfield
was rescued and rebuilt alongside by Laurence Cadbury, George's son. Events programme. Tel. 0121 472 0199.
