Birmingham – Harborne 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.

Harborne BathsShortly after the residents of King’s Heath had pressed for a bath in their district, an approach was made to the Council by the residents of Harborne for a bath to be erected on a site which had been acquired by the Baths Committee in Lordswood Road in 1911.

Constructed on almost identical lines to the establishment at King’s Heath, and again forming part of the City’s Unemployed Relief Scheme, the Harborne Baths, opened on 13th December, 1923, give good service to swimmers and as a Hall in winter time.
