100 Sampson Road, Sparkhill - Birmingham

Built in 1901 as the vicarage to St Agatha's Church in Sparkbrook and designed in an Arts and Crafts style by local Birmingham architect, WH Bidlake. Formerly converted to flats by a housing association, the building is now in private ownership but has been subject to heritage crime and is now suffering from dry rot and isolated structural issues. Localised repairs have been carried out but there is a longstanding lack of regular maintenance with missing tiles, decaying windows and other issues continuing.
