Birmingham – Grove Lane Baths

The following is taken directly from The City of Birmingham Baths Department 1851 – 1951. The work was written and compiled by J. Moth M.N.A.B.S Birmingham 1951 and is presented here.

Grove Lane BathsOn the 28th January, 1907, the Grove Lane Baths, built by the Handsworth Local Board, was opened to the public and offered First and Second Class Swimming Baths, suites of First and Second Class Private Baths for Men and Women and an excellent Turkish Baths designed in ‘an appropriate Eastern style’.

The First Class Swimming Bath, which has a spectators’ gallery, was fitted with a floor in the winter months and used for social purposes.

Each Swimming Bath is 100ft. long, a somewhat unusual feature for an establishment constructed some fifty years ago and one which has earned the gratitude of all swimmers attending the Grove Lane Baths.
