Following Leigh Walker’s great article about the fate of Northfield Manor House, we found out that English Heritage had assessed the building (pdf) for statutory listing and found it unsuitable, that it IS locally listed, that it is still owned by the university and that is up for sale.
Leigh has been working hard looking into this, and has some new information which he’ll be updating you with next week. (Thanks, Leigh!)
In the meantime, we thought you might enjoy these pictures from Ash Matadeen, a former student at Birmingham University and resident of the halls of residence at the Manor House. They show the building in much better days!

Thank you, Ash!
