Notes

Heathfield Hall, sometimes referred to as Heathfield House, was was erected between 1787-90 for the celebrated engineer and inventor, James Watt, and was designed by Samuel Wyatt. Situated to the north of Heathfield Road in Handsworth, the hall was eventually, in 1876, surrounded by a new development of semi-detached villas on the Heathfield estate. Heathfield Hall was demolished in 1927.
