Join us for a fascinating walking tour and discover the Moor Pool Garden Suburb, a hidden gem less than 3 miles from Birmingham City Centre. Following his passion for high quality housing for all, John Sutton Nettlefold commissioned Martin and Martin to build this Garden
Suburb at the beginning of the twentieth Century, and it was completed in 1912. Integral to the Estate’s plan were the communal facilities which are still well used today.
Moor Pool Estate is the perfect combination of heritage and community. Come along on our walking tour and find out more about Nettlefold and his ideas, and immerse yourself in this perfectly preserved Garden Suburb, designed in the Arts and Crafts style. Experience the peace and tranquillity of this beautiful haven, and discover the historic sporting clubs, many of which still thrive today. The tour finishes in our Edwardian Skittle Alley, where participants can try their hand at a game of skittles!
Assemble for this walking tour outside the front door of Moor Pool Hall on The Circle at 1.45pm. Parking can be found on adjacent streets. Please wear appropriate clothing and footwear for the weather and conditions. Walk includes some steps and other uneven surfaces.
