Marston Green began as a sma veelage surroondit bi agricultural land in the estate o Coleshill at this time, the veelage wis kent as Merstone. The veelage grew intae a leafy suburb in the late nineteent an early twintiet centuries, due tae the construction o mony detached and semi-detached homes in the 1930s, which were typical of many suburban hames in the aurie. The growth o hames here wis encouraged bi the presence o a rail station. Follaein the expansion o the nearbi Birmingham Internaitional Airport, the construction o the Naitional Exhibition Centre an the local hoosin estate o Chelmsley Wood, Marston Green haes grown lairgely intae a commuter veelage wi mony o its residents wirkin in Solihull an Birmingham.
