Moseley Hall Dovecote and 18th C style garden
The 18th century dovecote and garden offers an insight into Moseley’s rural past, before its incorporation into the City of Birmingham.
Find out about the role the brown rat and the French Revolution played in the history of dovecotes while enjoying smelling and seeing the herbs and fruits available to cooks and gardeners in the 18th century. The Moseley Society restored the dovecote and first opened it to the public in 1985. This year we are celebrating the Society’s 40th anniversary and the role it has played in the tolerant, cosmopolitan suburb that Moseley has become since its incorporation into the City of Birmingham in 1911. We continue to influence planning and licensing policy while our active history group researches many aspects of Moseley’s past.
• Displays of the Society’s history will be on view.
• You can also visit Moseley Park & Pool and the Moseley Hall icehouse (which is in Moseley Park) at the same time.
