Caring for an historic area of Birmingham

Moseley is a diverse, vibrant suburb three miles south of central Birmingham, with fine Victorian and Edwardian housing, attractive green spaces and historic buildings.  It is continually under  pressure for further development, not always in keeping with the character of the area. The Moseley Society was formed to conserve and enhance the environment of Moseley and respond to development issues in collaboration with voluntary organisations and public bodies, increase understanding of Moseley’s heritage and encourage community participation.  To read more about the Society, click here.

The Society runs a Programme of evening talks on a variety of topics (click to view) and publishes quarterly Newsletters with updates on local news and events (click to view).

We continually monitor and respond to local development proposals and planning applications (click to view).  We also maintain the historic Dovecote and Icehouse on the former Moseley Hall estate, which the Society was instrumental in preserving (click to read more).  We have created an attractive award-winning 18th century style garden around the Dovecote and are keen to enlist the support of knowledgeable gardeners to help with its maintenance and further development.

The Society plays an active part in local events such as the Moseley Festival and has an enthusiastic Local History group which welcomes new members (click to read more).
