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

Moseley School of Art was designed by Bidlake and built in 1899. It was bought from the Council in the 1980s by the Moseley Muslim Community Association (MMCA). The building is now suffering from neglect; spalling stonework and leaking roofs are problems. Historic England and the Architectural Heritage Fund have worked with the MMCA to take a project for more intensive use forward and a stage one Heritage Lottery Fund grant has been awarded.
