    Default Moseley Road Baths

    Some of the older people on here may remember these beautiful Victorian baths, most towns had one

    Moseley Road Baths in Balsall Heath, Birmingham is a well loved Edwardian Swimming Pool of huge historical and architectural significance. the Gala Pool has been closed since August 2003.

    A great building. i hope it has a preservation order on it. Or some developer will just bulldoze it and stick up a piece of shit.

    Christ brings back memories.
    My school swimming galas were held at those baths many many years ago.
    To be fair its an impressive building architecturally.
    Birmingham council shutting these down all over at the moment.
    Victorian baths at Stirchley also shut down and boarded up, looks pretty similar to these baths.
