Wondering what is happening with Moseley Road Baths’ future?  There was a flurry of activity last Autumn when we raised a whopping great £26,000 towards the running costs of Moseley Road Baths when it is handed over to a community organisation to manage.  Since then a lot of work has been happening behind the scenes.  […]

Fri, 19 Jan 2018 15:22:01 +0000

A guest blog by Phil Beardmore Moseley Road Baths is a beautiful treasure of a building.  It is also very old and hasn’t had much investment over the years.  So it is no surprise that it is a building that is quite wasteful of heat, power and water. So I was delighted in summer 2017 […]

Here are some of the Birmingham swimming memories you’ve shared with us. What has been amazing is how many generations have swum and still swim at Moseley Road Baths and the impact that some of our teachers (especially Mrs Yates!) had. “Moseley Baths is where me and my sister and my mother all learnt to […]

We’ve had so many comments via the Crowdfunder, the petition, and via the National Trust mail-out that we’ve decided to compile a few of them for […]
