Former School of Art, 496-500 Moseley Road, Moseley - Birmingham

Moseley School of Art was designed by WH Bidlake and built in 1899. It was bought from the Council in the 1980s by the Moseley Muslim Community Association (MMCA). Through the following years the building slowly deteriorated, with spalling stonework and leaking roofs needing repair. Feasibility work carried out by Historic England, the Architectural Heritage Fund and the MMCA indicated that a more intensive use would be appropriate. Repair carried out with grants by Historic England and the Heritage Lottery Fund are currently in progress.
