SAVE THE GOLDEN LION
Save the Golden Lion
For the second time in its history the grade II listed Golden Lion is at risk of being lost. Originally built as a Guild-house on the Deritend in the 16th Century, the building was saved from demolition in 1911 by the Birmingham Archaeological society and transported brick-by-brick to its current home in Cannon Hill Park.
A structure much-loved by the local community, the building has been slowly deteriorating and is sadly now held up by scaffolding. Re.Future Collective in partnership with the Birmingham and District Allotment Confederation and Birmingham City Council have secured funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund to undertake an options appraisal on the building, to regenerate the building through community co- design.
