Birmingham – Kingstanding 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.

Kingstanding BathsThe second of the Department’s Baths to be erected in the newly developed areas of the City was at Warren Farm Road, Kingstanding. Opened on the 31st March, 1938, this establishment is well set back from the road with a turfed forecourt, harmonising with the general layout of this part of the district.

The facilities available are similar in every respect to those at Northfield Baths, the large swim being 100ft. by 35ft., graded from 3ft. 3in. to 10ft. 2in., and the learners’ pool 36ft. by 18ft., graded from 2ft. 3in. to 4ft. 6in.
