Edgbaston has a reputation of being the most 'well to do' part of Birmingham. In the 19th century the town was under the control of the Gough-Calthorpe family who refused to allow factories or warehouses to be built in Edgbaston, thus making it attractive for the upper class.
Warwickshire County Cricket Club is based in Edgbaston (Edgbaston historically being part of Warwickshire), but there are proposals to relocate to a new ground, elsewhere in the city. Edgbaston is also home to the main campus of the University of Birmingham.
