Baths in the Future

The glorious old swimming baths on Moseley Road has many friends. The Friends of Moseley Road Baths want to keep them in use for the future, while restoring the 100-year old architecture.
Balsall Heath Is Our Planet adds that there are great opportunities for 21st century technology to make the baths much more energy and water efficient, so keeping future running costs low and helping to justify the capital cost of their restoration.
A ‘Combined heat and power’ (CHP) plant would uses the waste heat from electricity generation – and public baths require hot water all year round. There is also a borehole under the baths that could be re-opened, so we won’t need to pay for drinking water from the mains to swim in.
