The Austin Village is a unique residential community in Birmingham, UK, consisting of 200 prefabricated American-made cedarwood bungalows. Built in 1917 to house the rapidly expanding workforce of the Austin Motor Co. of Longbridge during The First World War, it is an important part of Birmingham's history and a special community that has thrived for over 100 years.
