The name refers to the Acock family who built a large house in the area. The present centre is at a roundabout where the Warwick Road meets Shirley and Westley Roads, and locals call this 'The Green'. The name thus conjures up an image of a village developing over the centuries in an organic way. The actual history of the area is not that straightforward.
