- Ask for a calculation of the distance from Moseley to another place.
Historically in Worcestershire, the northern part of King's Norton (including Moseley) became part of the County Borough of Birmingham in 1891 (see Wikipedia) and de facto Warwickshire. It appears that following the change Birmingham ran southwards to the River Rea (in the west) and the Stratford on Avon canal (in the east) (Vision of Britain, Birmingham is coloured pink in the NW corner).
