Moseley Road Baths is a community-led swimming pool in Balsall Heath in Birmingham which is open for swimming 7 days a week (our most up-to-date timetable is available on the button below). Volunteers are essential to making sure that we can stay open so if you think you’d like to volunteer then get in touch using the button below.

THE RECENT HISTORY OF MOSELEY ROAD BATHS

Moseley Road Baths was  under threat of closure for many years and local people got together to form a Friends campaigning group in 2006 and, more recently, an Action Group in 2016 which started to look at taking over the pool as a community run swimming facility.

Moseley Road Baths Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) was set up at the end of 2017 with the aim of ensuring that the  people of Balsall Heath, a deprived area of Birmingham, can continue to enjoy fitness and wellbeing activity and swimming lessons that would otherwise be unavailable to them because of the cost or need to travel.

The CIO took over the day to day running of swimming at Moseley Road Baths at the beginning of April 2018 on a business-like but not-for-profit basis.  Trustees are members of the local community and regular swimmers at the pool and many have been involved for some years in the campaign to try to save this Grade II* historic baths.  The CIO has a business plan which shows that, with a part staff and part volunteer model, the pool should be able to sustain itself after three years.

MOSELEY ROAD BATHS ‘COALITION OF THE WILLING’

We are also fortunate to be working with a ‘coalition’ of organisations – the National Trust, Historic England, World Monuments Fund, Birmingham City Council and the Friends of Moseley Road Baths – who are working together to secure a future for the building as a whole. As an initial step the Gala Pool Roof is being renovated with a view to making this space useable, and the heritage organisations are working with the City Council to develop a maintenance plan for the building that will halt deterioration and keep the pool operational settings.
