A disused police station will be turned into a Muslim community centre after it was purchased for more than £800,000.

The station

The Great Barr Muslim Foundation has purchased the former Perry Barr police station on Walsall Road, at a recent auction run by SDL Auctions Bigwood.

The site went under the hammer last week and sold for £820,000, the highest price among the 126 lots which went up for sale.

The group has said it was a 'one off opportunity' and have now put down a 10 per cent deposit and are asking for donations to help get up to the total.

A Facebook post from the group reads: "Great Barr Muslim Foundation have purchased the police station on the 394 Walsall Road for £820,000.

"This was a one off opportunity for us to acquire a building of this type for a muslim community centre.

"We have put down a 10 per cent deposit and need to provide the complete sum within 28 days."
