Rookery House is situated in Rookery Park in Erdington. The picture actually shows one of the sides of the building and its beautiful garden. It was built in 1727 and was once the home of anti-slavery activist, William Wilberforce. For many years it was owned by Birmingham City Council but was sold as they could no longer afford to maintain it. There seems to be some building work/maintenance going on there now but I don’t know who owns it now, or what their intentions are. I do hope that it will be restored to its former glory.
