Public Baths, Moseley - Birmingham

Municipal baths with lavish terracotta decoration and complete interiors. The baths were opened in 1907 as an addition to the Free Library (1895) forming a group of public buildings. Threat of closure has been averted with the swimming group taking over the swimming operation until 2021. Historic England provided a substantial repair grant for the Gala pool roof in conjunction with Birmingham City Council in 2019. Works are now complete. With the coalition of stakeholders, options for future uses to complement the swimming and the next phase of repairs are being explored.
