Horseshoe shaped former stables and stores (City of Birmingham Engineers Depot), 23 Sheepcote Street, Ladywood - Birmingham

Former stables, originally a Corporation Depot built in 1873, the design was the winning competition entry by WH Ward. All four buildings are in poor condition. The Roundhouse is mainly vacant and clearly deteriorating. The Canal and River Trust is working with the National Trust on a mixed use scheme for re-use with a visitor centre and canal related activities. The project has been awarded a Heritage Lottery Fund grant for repairs and refurbishment works.
