Stirchley Public Baths
Stirchley Public Baths
Stirchley Baths are situated at the junction of Bournville Lane and Hazelwell Street. This grade II listed building was built land provided by the Cadburys and officially opened on July 25th 1911 The swimming pool has been closed for 20 years or more and in very poor state. The state of the baths mirrors the general economic decline in the Stirchley area in the 1970s/80s. There are plans to regenerate the area and several applications being considered for various retail developments on adjacent sites. Proposals by the co-op, who have a very large superstore nearby, includes renovation of the baths.

Update - February 2012: In 2011 Tesco announced an agreement with Birmingham City Council for purchase land required for the construction of a new supermarket, occupied by Stirchley Community Centre and an indoor bowls centre. The money raised is to be used to restore Stirchley Baths for use as new community centre.
