St Edmund's School
(now Dudley Central Mosque)

Originally known as the St Edmund’s District National School, Lord Ward of Himley donated the land and its foundation stone was laid by Lady Ward in August 1848. 

The architect was William Bourne. Records indicate that it was built to accommodate 375 children aged 5-11: 115 infants and 260 older children. In 1881 it was reported that “This flourishing school has been of immense value to the poorer classes of the (Dudley) inhabitants, having turned out some very clever boys and girls”. The school finally closed in 1974 and the building is now the Dudley Central Mosque.  The building was listed in 1976, Grade II.
