Handsworth Old Town Hall
The 15th century building is a rare example of cruck construction still in an urban location and is run as a small community museum with many maps, photographs, books etc relating to Handsworth in the 19th and early 20th centuries.
We currently have displays on Toys of Yesteryear and hope to have one about former local shops in the area. The display will also feature small watercolours of local buildings painted by one of our late members and a display of Birmingham ‘toys’ – useful small metal objects made when Birmingham was the city of 1000 trades.
There will be no formal tours but allow about an hour for a good look around and refreshments afterwards. On street car parking nearby. Close to bus routes 11 (circular) and 101 (from city centre).
Organised by Handsworth Historical Society
