Birley Spa Bath House
Birley Spa is a community hall and a Victorian bathhouse in the Hackenthorpe district of the City of Sheffield, England. It was built for Charles Herbert Pierrepont, 2nd Earl Manvers and the Lord of the Manor of Beighton in 1842, and initially was a hotel with spa baths beneath. Subsequently, it was used for many years as private dwellings. In the 1973 it was given Grade II listed building status. History
The Pond, Grounds and Wildlife
The garden and grounds although rather neglected are home to a number of ancient oaks and an abundance of wildlife. The pond has a resident Kingfisher, with Mallard and a Heron visiting frequently. More
We are on the lookout for volunteers who share our vision and can help us in our quest. If you want to be involved please contact
