Moseley road baths

Since 2013 the council have decided not to retain this and other pools in the city. Already neglected the building suffers from a lack of maintenance and the structure is past due for repair. A local group campaigns for it’s preservation and active use. Personally I would like to see proposals that avoid adaption to generic sports standards and instead seek to promote it’s unique qualities as a destination for character bathing. Many parts if the building including the bathing rooms, where men and women could take a bath, are disused. The building is linked to it’s sister building, a library, and harks back to an age of public buildings for health, education and improvement for the public. On our age of mean individualism there seem to be no political institutions who can support this kind of project. Hats off to you Edwardians!
