Moseley Park and Pool is part of the former estate of Moseley Hall (grade 2 listed), which was rebuilt in 1792-6 for John Taylor, a Birmingham manufacturer. The Hall had been burnt out in the Birmingham Riots of 1791 when ‘the mob’ rampaged around Birmingham setting fire to the residences of many landowners.
Besides the rebuilt and enlarged Hall, Taylor commissioned a plan for the parkland from Humphry Repton who described himself as a landscape gardener, the first person to do so. Taylor was one of the founders of Taylors and Lloyd’s Bank, today Lloyds.
Moseley Park and Pool is run by a charitable trust, which cares for the landscape, makes sure it is open for everybody on Wellness Wednesdays and Open Days, and supports our Key Holders to enjoy the site 365 days a year.
