In circa 1830, the now Grade II listed Langford Villa was built and later became the summer residence of the Terry's family, the famous York chocolatiers. Shortly after, in 1835, Birmingham solicitor John Wilkes Uneet bought seven acres of land, which would later become the Royal Crescent and was opened in the 1850s.
