Solihull probably came into being about a thousand years ago as a clearing in the forest to which people would come to trade. The Doomsday Survey of 1086 would suggest that it was one of the most sparsely populated areas in the country. The first known reference to Solihull occurs in a tax list dated around 1180. The earlier Anglo-Saxon settlement of Ulverlei lay about two miles North West,in the area of present day Olton. “It is most likely that Solihull was founded, during the lordship of the last of the de Limesis , as a market centre , a ‘planted borough’. The site chosen was at the junction of important medieval roads on top of the hill from which it derived its name ‘soly hill’ meaning ‘miry hill’. It may be that there was already a holy well. The origins of St Alphege Church date from this time.”
By 1200 Solihull was fully established and Ulverlei was being referred to as Olton. It began to develop at the beginning of the 13th century with market rights granted in 1242. In 1417 Henry V claimed the manor as his own. Solihull’s relatively isolated position precluded any large scale or dramatic changes. Agriculture remained the chief source of employment locally, together with the manufacture of hunting weapons and agricultural implements. By the 18th century Solihull was well established as an administrative centre being the seat seat of the Petty Sessions, having it’s own County Court, and a grammar school which famously rejected Samuel Johnson’s application to be the headmaster. By the end of the century the area’s main industry was still farming with Solihull as it’s market centre, but it was also developing as a location for the grand houses of Birmingham’s industrialists.
Industrial Birmingham has been growing at a prolific rate since the mid 18th century. The opening of the Birmingham to Oxford Railway destroyed Solihull’s isolation for ever and it’s growth began in earnest. This accelerated in from the 1920’s with a tremendous amount of land development including houses, industry and parks. Solihull’s population grew correspondingly: in 1921 – 21,00, 1932 – 25,00, and 1941 – 60,000. During the Second World War industry expanded and the Rover Car Company established a factory, which in post war times led to Solihull becoming known as the home of the Land Rover.

"Thankyou so much for the care and speed that you gave me for scrapping my car. I'd had her a long time and was sad to see her go, but the guy who removed the car was so professional about it, it was easier than I thought. I would definitely recommend you to anybody in the future." Les & Jackie Eales
