Icknield Street School, Icknield Street, Hockley - Birmingham

Large Birmingham Board School designed in 1883 by Martin and Chamberlain. The building is partly occupied on the ground floor as a Hindu temple for the purpose of worship and community use; the upper floors are vacant. The building is in poor condition generally: the steep slate roofs and valley gutters leak to the spaces below and the rainwater goods are in poor condition resulting in rainwater entry affecting both roof and walls. Negotiations between the owners, the Council, and the tenants to determine how the building can be protected are taking place and are on-going.
