"BIRMINGHAM, a parish and market town, municipal and parliamentary borough, and important seat of manufactures, in the Birmingham division of the hundred of Hemlingford, in the county of Warwick and partly in the county of Worcestershire, 20 miles to the N.W. of Warwick, and 113 miles from London by the London and North-Western railway. It is situated in the northwest corner of the county, on the confines of Staffordshire and Worcestershire, on the small streams called the Rea and the Tame, and is one of the great centres both of railway and canal communication, ranking unquestionably, for its wealth and population, as the capital of the midland counties, and one of the large towns of Europe, though not legally entitled to the designation of a city."
