A Short History of Dorridge
Dorridge is situated east of the M40 and south of the M42 and forms part of the ‘Midlands Plateau’ along the Warwickshire border.
It is quite a large village that came into importance mid-19th century, but records show that it dates as far back as the 15th century: it was mentioned in the Westminster Muniments and at that time the given name was "Derrech", a name typically given for a ridge of land that ran in a westerly direction from Knowle (known as Dorege).
There are signs that this village actually dates back as far as the Bronze Age around 1300BC, but it is assumed that due to the lack of significant road or railway system no community was present until the 16th century.
From 1662 onwards, records show that there was some activity in the area and a parish boundary had been mapped out.
During 1852, Dorridge became more prominent when the Great Western Railway was built, creating a focal point for the whole community with a railway station in its midst.
The land was granted to the Muntz family upon the proviso that they built a station for the railway to stop in the area. In the early stages, trains ran between Lapworth and Birmingham but in the mid 1960's evidence shows that there was a sharp decline in this service and it was only revived by the privatization of British Rail in the 1990's. Despite being classed as a village, Dorridge is very much seen as an important stop for the “Express Service Train”.
Not only did they develop a station but the overall development of this village can also be linked in part to the Muntz family, who founded their industrial wealth on a brass-making process that was used in the ship building industry.
The Muntz family also acquired a significant amount of the land in the area and helped Dorridge’s development through the building of shops and houses to support a growing community. George Frederic Muntz became a political reform supporter and it is said that the Reform Act of 1832 was created due to the fact that on several occasions he tried to undermine the Duke of Wellington.
Later on, the Truelove family became the local gentry and they supported and helped create affordable terraced housing. Alongside these homes, an Asylum was also built to house who were considered at the time "in-educable" or "idiot" girls and in 1872 a larger facility was sought due to its popularity.
Dorridge was not considered a separate district in its own right until 1940.
