The land that now makes up Edgbaston Stadium was originally owned by the Calthorpe Estate, who had developed the manor of Edgbaston into an exclusive Birmingham suburb over the course of the 19th century. They thought a cricket ground to be an asset that would add to the genteel image of the area. Warwickshire had considered Rugby and Leamington Spa for its county headquarters, but club secretary William Ansell believed that Birmingham’s large population and comprehensive railway connections made it preferable – envisaging first-class status for the county and test status for the ground.
