Blists Hill Victorian Town was opened in 1973, and has been slowly growing ever since. The museum’s buildings fall into one of three categories: buildings that were already part of the industrial site (e.g. the brickworks); buildings that simply represent a generic type (e.g. the sweet shop), some adaptively reusing existing premises on site or being replicas of those still standing elsewhere; and original buildings that have been relocated to the museum such as this school which was originally in Stirchley, Birmingham.
Stirchley Board School, originally built in 1881, was dismantled, transported and re-erected brick by brick. It reopened as an exhibit 1992.

Children can dress up in the style of the day and experience what it would have been like to be at school in Victorian times including threats of violence, lots of getting shouted at and being humiliated and frightened by the teachers.
It looked like great fun.

    Very interesting photo, I am just surprised that boys and girls are together.

  • Thank you, they probably wouldn’t have been in the day but as this is just playing dressing up I let them off.
