Riassunto: Bournville began as a "Model Village" in 1895 and has since grown into a large garden suburb. Started by the Quaker chocolate manufacturer George Cadbury, this seminal scheme was handed over to a charitable Trust in 1900. The Trustees have carefully controlled the growth of the estate, which now covers more than a thousand acres and contains some 7,600 houses. The aims of the Trust remain very similar to those established by Cadbury, and Bournville was and is still renowned for its clever site planning, good quality housing, and excellent landscaping.

L'autore: Michael Harrison is currently deputy head of the School of Theoretical and Historical Studies at the University of Central England. Awarded a PhD for his study of the Manchester social and environmental reformer Thomas Coglan Horsfall, Dr. Harrison has been studying garden suburbs for over 25 years. He has published articles and essays on housing reform and town planning in late Victorian and Edwardian Manchester, garden suburbs, the German influence on the early town planning movement in Britain.
