Inside the Erdington baths

The Mason Road Public Baths in Erdington were opened by the Birmingham Corporation on 6 May 1925. They originally comprised a swimming bath, slipper baths for men and women, and a Turkish baths suite with a Russian steam room and an Aeratone bath.

Hot rooms 

The baths are still open, but they are to be replaced by a new leisure centre in 2017, and this will not include a Turkish bath.
