Petition update

Auctioneers show potential buyers around Birley Spa

Friends of Birley Spa

Aug 16, 2018 — 

The auctioneers that Sheffield City Council are using are showing people around the Bath House. I have heard that there has been lots on interest including someone wanting to turn Birley Spa into a nightclub! This is a real travesty and we are fighting hard to stop the sale.

There is no power in the building now but this is the latest photo of the Victorian plunge pool. We are also fighting hard to protect the plunge pool. There is no requirement for any buyer to protect the plunge pool or to allow public access for local heritage tours. This 170 year old building should be restored and brought back into use as a community and heritage site not just sold off as something worthless!

Sheffield City Council are refusing to back down and will not even postpone the sale by one or two months to allow other options to be investigated that will safeguard the Bath House.

Please lobby the Birley Ward councillor’s and encourage other people to sign the petition.
