Longbridge, Birmingham Area Guide
Located in south-west Birmingham, Longbridge is surrounded by Frankley, Frankley Beeches, Rubery, Rednal, Bromsgrove, Northfield, Kings Heath and Kings Norton. Longbridge was a centre of the UK’s automotive industry for decades. Vehicles for household names such as MG Rover, Morris, Austin, Nash Metropolitan and British Leyland, which represented some of the greatest achievements and innovations in British automotive design history, were manufactured at the famous Longbridge Plant. In 2006 the Plant was sadly demolished, having ceased operations. However, the site has since been rebuilt and regenerated so that the area can continue to grow.
