Kingstanding is an area in north Birmingham, England. It gives its name to a ward in the Erdington council constituency.[1] Kingstanding ward includes the areas; Perry Common, St. Mary`s College, Witton Lakes and parts of Kingstanding, Wyrley Birch and New Oscott.

The other part of Kingstanding falls under the Oscott ward.

Kingstanding houses a covered drinking water reservoir, Perry Barr Reservoir, on the site of the former Perry Barr Farm.

Kingstanding is served by two libraries; Kingstanding Library and Perry Common Library.

The name of the area is derived from the occasion when the Stuart King Charles I supposedly reviewed his troops standing on the Neolithic Bowl Barrow in the area on October 18, 1642 during the English Civil War, after his stay at nearby Aston Hall. The first references to Kingstanding were as King`s Standing.

The course of the Icknield Street Roman Road runs past this barrow; and when the foundations for the water pumping station were being dug in 1884, a hoard of Roman coins was discovered.

Warren Farm Estate in 1929.

The area was largely rural until the 1928, when large-scale residential development commenced in the area.[2] The first of the estates was completed in 1934.[3] It was during the 1930s and 1940s that most of the current housing was built. Most of the houses in Kingstanding were built as council houses with the majority being located in the north of the area. At the time, it was the largest council housing development in Europe, containing some 6,700 properties on its completion.

In 1935, an Odeon cinema, designed by Cecil Clavering, was opened in the area. On June 6, 1964, Kingstanding Library opened. It had an area of 1,000 sq ft (93 m2) and was identified as being liable to mining subsidence.

Kingstanding is featured in the novel The Last Viking by Dr Ron Dawson. The author grew up at number 79 Parkeston Crescent, and used the estate and its many characters as the backcloth to his Birmingham based novel.
