Pype Hayes Hall

Pype Hayes Hall is a former manor house which dates from about 1630CE. The house was built by Hervey Bagot, second son of the 1st Baron Bagot (the nearby pub is known as the Bagot Arms). The Bagot family lived in the house for two hundred and fifty years. A stable block was added in 1762 and the house considerably altered and enlarged in the 18th and 19th centuries. The Bagots sold the house the City of Birmingham Corporation in 1920.

The grounds the hall sat in became Pype Hayes Park. The Hall was used as a children's home by the council for a number of decades. The building has now been sold and there are plans to turn it into a hotel and spa (though as yet unrealised).
