Herbert Austin founded the Austin Motor Company at Longbridge in 1905 and moved his family to Lickey Grange in 1910. The Austin 7 was designed at Lickey Grange between 1921 and 1922 in the billiards room! Lickey Grange has since been converted into luxury apartments, and the remainder of the estate was developed in more recent times.
