One of Birmingham’s oldest buildings, SELLY MANOR dates back to the 1300s.
By the turn of the 20th Century, it had been divided into three separate homes, and fallen into disrepair.
In 1907, busy establishing his vision of a Bournville village, local chocolate maker and philanthropist, George Cadbury, saved it from demolition.
He employed the architect William Alexander Harvey to oversee its relocation, to Bournville Green.
Within its grounds, the magnificent cruck-framed medieval hall house, MINWORTH GREAVES, is considered to be as much as 750 years old.
Today, Selly Manor is home to the fascinating LAURENCE CADBURY COLLECTION of furniture and is licensed for weddings and civil partnerships.
It also hosts a variety of annual open days, workshops, exhibitions and popular educational tours. Check out our calendar of events to find out what’s on.
