    Default Public Toilets/Conveniences

    I know this sounds a little weird for a thread, but it has been in my mind for some time now.

    There are some interesting public toilets around (Park Road, St John's Gardens, London Road)
    And also, I often wonder how many underground toilets there were...I know there was a set in Victoria Street and one next to Petony's Buildings next to St James' Church...

    I will take some pics in the next few days...

    Interesting topic. A great shame none of them are open any more.

    You're not wrong there missy.....

    Am I right in saying that the 'Roundabout' at the top of Penny Lane used to be ladies/gents?

    Attached a couple of pictures, one taken by me at the top of St Barnabas tower while working on it!

    Hi Jona76

    Great couple of pics of the former bus shelter at the top of Penny Lane, Jona76. Yes it was a bus shelter with I believe gents and ladies toilets.

    Alot have been knocked down, there's the remains of one in Garston Village, plus Lodge Lane and I'm sure there were public toilets at Otterspool, by where they used to sell ice creams.

    There's still some left on West Derby Road near the bridge by Tuebrook police station, but theyve been closed for years. There used to be some on Broadway in Norris Green which have now been converted into some sort of beauty salon.

    Hi Kev

    I may be dreaming but I think the public toilets at Otterspool were set into the hillside along the prom.... or do you mean down in the valley by the old mansion, Otterspool House, where the ice creams where sold?

    There used to be some next to Woolton Woods and these WC's have been closed for many years. The 'rest area' between the two sets of WC's have also been fenced off.

    There also used to be a set of public toilets on Childwall Abbey Road just before you go to the Abbey Pub at the bottom!

    They closed the lodge lane ones.

    They keep closing the public toilets and not building new ones!

    The Sergent Pepper ones closed too, I remember going in there.

    The one on Wellington Road in Wavertree closed after being burned out too and then bricked up!

    You can still see the 'room' with no roof as you walk past though! I reckon you'll find MissInformed there
