In Kings Norton you'll find the largest complex of medieval buildings in Birmingham. The Tudor Merchant’s House and the 17th century Old Grammar School are set either side of St Nicolas' Church, a place of worship much of which has stood here since Norman times.
They were restored in 2004 and are owned and managed by Kings Norton Parish Church Council for all to enjoy and use although this is set to change in the future. Together, they constitute the finest collection of mediaeval buildings in Birmingham. The heritage buildings are complemented by modern facilities including a welcoming café, toilets and gift shop.
Kings Norton’s medieval buildings won the BBC2 Restoration television series in August 2004 after an intense and widely-supported campaign.
