Coming to Quinton?
Quinton is a largely suburban area on the south-western edge of Birmingham. The land was owned by the wealthy Lapal Abbey through much of the medieval ages, and went through a spell of rapid development during the industrial revolution. There were once two small coal mines operating in the area, and many of the people living there worked in the local nail manufacturing industry.
