Highbury Hall - Birmingham

Gardens and landscaped grounds of 1879 by Edward Milner associated with a contemporary, villa built for Joseph Chamberlain. Greater part of grounds a public park since early C20. The condition of the park and gardens has declined significantly. Most of the original built landscape features and water features are in poor, dilapidated condition. Poor drainage causing erosion and waterlogging problems in the park. Anti-social behaviour is an issue, including an incident of arson this year. National Lottery Heritage Fund bids for funding have been unsuccessful to date.
