The Moseley Society –
Caring for an historic area of Birmingham
If you are interested in joining the Society, see here for How to Join.
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 this end, we continually monitor and respond to planning applications and local development proposals. The Moseley Society Chronological Summary 1979-2019 gives a full chronology of all the achievements of the Moseley Society over the past 40 years. You can find out more about the Society here.
The Society runs a Programme of evening talks on a variety of topics and publishes quarterly Newsletters with updates on local news and events. It plays an active part in local events such as the Moseley Festival and has an enthusiastic Local History group which welcomes new members.
We also maintain the historic Dovecote and Icehouse on the former Moseley Hall estate, which the Society was instrumental in preserving. 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.
