Moseley Road Baths, an Edwardian swimming hall, is at risk of being closed due to cutbacks in government spending by the Birmingham City Council. Local advocates, led by the Friends of Moseley Road Baths, have been working since 2006 to keep the baths open and make the case for their social, historical, and architectural significance. A Watch Day in October 2016 attracted over 300 visitors of all ages who enjoyed a day filled with activities celebrating 109 years of Moseley Road Baths. In this video, co-produced by World Monuments Fund with the support of American Express, users of the historic baths share their experiences and emphasize the importance of the historic site for the diverse urban community it serves.
