One hundred Swimmers standing in the gala pool at Moseley Road Baths in Birmingham, July 2014. The swimmers are standing against the announced closure of the facility, one of the oldest Edwardian pools in the UK. After this photo was taken, and thanks to the untired efforts of the local community, the closure was delayed several times. In 2016, the World Monument Fund included the Moseley Baths in their watch list, giving them access to £1 Million for emergency repairs. In 2020, the roof repairs were concluded making futher refurbishment operations possible.
The resilience and cohesion of the Moseley Road Baths community is being rewarded. A light of hope shines on the future of this heritage building and its people.
