A listed former Birmingham school has been included in a list of the ten most endangered buildings in England and Wales.
The Victorian Society said the Grade II* former Moseley School of Art which was built in 1898 had suffered years of neglect.
The list of ten was drawn up using nominations from members of the public following a nationwide appeal to find the country’s best and most threatened Victorian and Edwardian buildings.
The privately-owned building, in Moseley Road, is currently the headquarters of the British Association of Muslims, the Victorian Society said.
It was designed by Arts and Crafts architect W H Bidlake and closed as an art school in 1975.
Society director Dr Ian Dungavell said: “Our heritage is a finite resource and once historic buildings like this are lost they cannot be replaced.
“Even in harsh economic times historic buildings like the former art school need to be cared for or they won’t survive for future generations.
“This is a nationally significant building and we urge the council to use its powers and make sure urgent repairs are carried out.”
Cabinet culture boss and Moseley councillor Martin Mullaney said council officers had tried to encourage the owners to bid for money from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
“We recognise the importance of the building,” he said.
No one from the association was available for comment.
