The village of King's Norton began to evolve in the medieval period and is continuing to grow and change while retaining its earlier landscape of a village surrounding a green. The creation of a cemetery at Longdales Road, and a development at Parsons Hill, have produced evidence of Roman activity possibly in conjunction with the transportation of salt from Droitwich Spa to Metchley Fort along Icknield Street. The canals are now used for leisure and may become a substitute for road transport for a wider heritage trail. Much of King's Norton was transferred from Worcestershire to Warwickshire in 1911 as part of the Greater Birmingham Extension Act. The inevitable encroachment onto Greenfield land was forecast by the visionary George Cadbury and a visit to King's Norton still means a visit to the Worcestershire countryside, but for how much longer?
