The Conservation Trust has been granted £14,000 of funding from English Heritage to carry out an architect’s appraisal at the 17th century Bells Farm in Druids Heath. It’s great news for the farmhouse, which is a Grade II*-listed and in urgent need of restoration after decades of without proper repair.
The funding, which will be matched by Birmingham City Council, will pay for an architect’s appraisal. It will then be possible to set out a proper plan for the building’s future maintenance and repair. Crucially, it will help to build a case for the Trust to apply to English Heritage for a complete restoration of the building.

Anyone who would like to help us in any way in our work to save the Bells Farm should contact us. We’re keen to talk to anyone who knows about the building or, of course, anyone who can help with funding!
