My cycling mates where talking about this the other week.
There is one in Arrowe Park, one outside cammel lairds by the bottle gas place.
One in Bromborough village that is now joints and pins.
The 'bummer bogs' on new chester road as we always called them by carlett park but after that from Heswall to chester queensferry we cannt think of anymore.

The one at Woodside replaced the rather magnificent former railway parcels offices seen in the photo - one for GWR and one for LNWR.

The loos on Atherton Street were on the other side of the road.....

What was old Birkenhead Institute site?

Where on Upton Road is this
Not sure where Upton Road is - going from Moreton Cross towards Upton is Upton Road and also the one from Claughton Village to Upton
