Birmingham City Council

Digbeth, Deritend and Bordesley High Streets Conservation Area



Digbeth Deritend and Bordesley

Digbeth, Deritend and Bordesley High Streets Conservation Area was designated in May 2000. It lies to the east of the city centre.

The conservation area contains the most significant remnants of mediaeval settlement in Birmingham including the fifteenth century Guildhall of St John (now the Old Crown public house).

These early townscape elements are of considerable significance in the history of Birmingham development and were of particular importance in the designation of the area.

The conservation area also derives significance from its survival as an inner city industrial quarter with a good range of industrial and commercial buildings dating from the mid-nineteenth to the mid-twentieth century.

A Character Appraisal and Management plan for the area was produced in 2009 to provide a framework for the preservation and enhancement of the character of the conservation area.

A map showing the boundary of the conservation area is below.
