The demolition last week of the historic St Pauls school house on the corner of Legge Lane and Camden Grove has had the benefit of allowing the public to see for the very first time an uninterrupted view of the hugely significant historic English Heritage Grade 2 *listed building, the Sir Henry Manton’s Glass and silver works now known as Gwenda Works , which was converted into 11 luxury apartments in 2004.

The building was built in 1913 and designed by Birmingham Architect William Doubleday and is recognized as one of the most important examples of Arts and Crafts factory in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter.

The site adjacent to Gwenda Works is due for redevelopment and there is a current planning application for the erection of new build to provide 136 dwellings.

The planning application can be viewed at Birmingham City Councils Planning Portal ref: 2017/00002/PA
