Old Harborne
by Roy Clarke

Prior to the Victorian period Harborne was a small country village in a remote part of Staffordshire. Although it then developed into a bustling suburb it still manages to retain some of the charm of a village community. Its most famous industry, the Chad Valley Company, is probably Britain's best known toy manufacturer and was based in the area for eighty years.
