History books show that this area of Lyndon was recorded as Lyne Green and Lyn Green during the nineteenth century. In Old English, the name Lin translates as ‘lime tree’ and was referred to as the Lime Tree Valley when it was given the name Lynedene in official records of the 1200s. Lyndon Green Windmill formed the topography of the area in times past. Lyndon Green was common pasture which belonged to Lyndon Manor. There is nothing left of this moated property now, finally being entirely demolished during the 1970s. Lyndon district is today geographically split between Birmingham and Solihull where it predominantly features private housing developments.
