Solihull is at the heart of England. It is at the heart of history. Roman legions tramped the lands and rested at Meriden; Anglo-Saxons hunted from hills like Elmdon (hill of the elms).
In the years following the Norman Conquest, traders traversed the Midlands between centres of commerce. The Shakespeares prospered in the district and William wrote about the Forest of Arden.
