Moseley Hall Dovecote and 18c style garden
The 18th century dovecote and garden offers an insight into Moseley’s rural past, before its incorporation into the City of Birmingham. The garden has been planted with species available when the buildings were new.
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. It provides a haven for wildlife with a small pond and wildflower meadow as well as the formal beds with herbs, vegetables, fruit, roses and shrubs all available to Georgian gardeners. Feel free to explore but please keep to the one-way route.
This event will run in line with local & national government guidelines at the time of the festival. Please enter from Alcester Road, follow one-way system, keep with your group and keep at least 2m distance from other visitors.
