Probably been touched on in earlier topics. Went for another evening stroll around west Kirby lake -this time quite a chilly breeze and inevitably the old bladder needed emptying. Considering its quite a popular venue in the evenings to catch the fantastic sunsets the loos are closed at 6:30. The locked doorway to the gents is slightly hidden and the area stinks of urine. Was towards dusk and did think about writing my name in the sand. wink. Come on Wirral cant we have one like in Clochmerle --open all hours

Wirral may be famed for its scenery but it certainly isn't famed for its public loos *sigh*. I remember when I went to Jersey they were all over the place, every little bay had one - very well supplied with facilities!

I think a lot of Wirral's loos were closed due to being misused and damaged, cost of cleaning and repair etc. These days they can make virtually vandal-proof loos, of stainless steel etc, or those self-cleaning free-standing Tardis-type thingies.

If it's supposed to be a 'leisure peninsula' there should be more loo provision for visitors who want to go walking and enjoy the views. Until 8pm Morrisons loos are available near West Kirby prom, but that's not the point. We shouldn't have to rely on the goodwill of supermarkets, pubs etc.

I remember the one at New Brighton being closed due to the amount of lewd activity that they were being used for. So it seems that it was easier to close them than sort the problem out.

I've been to Devon & Cornwall & there's toilets by the beaches & in the towns,they're open till sunset usually. council here think no one comes out after 5 o clock so the toilets get locked.

New Brighton, Moreton and West Kirby have two each.

Meols, Hoylake, Thornton Hough and New Ferry have one each.

I can't come to any sensible reasoning behind the selection.

I remember being at a meeting where it transpired that a council official had randomly stated there had been complaints of homosexual use at one toilets (Banks Road car park, Heswall), the neighbours wanted the toilets to remain and said they hadn't seen anything, the Police said they had no knowledge of activity there and they patrolled the area, Councillor Moonie was too busy repeatedly proclaiming her innocence to actually talk about the closure of the toilets. The toilets were closed and demolished.

There was the massive refurbishment of the toilets opposite Carlett Park, cars used to stop there and people disappear in the toilets for 20-30 minutes or longer (one car used to be there for hours at a time on a regular basis). I guess they must have complained about the poor amenities and hence it was upgraded.

To try to distance ourselves from discussion of certain unsavoury use of public toilets, who remembers a thread from years ago posting pictures of long-closed public toilets? Here's one: corner of Argyle St. and Dacre St. Notice the old entrances, bricked up in a different brick.

Here's another on Upton Rd. near the junction with Bidston Rd. Here, they didn't bother to demolish the terra cotta brickwork.

There is one on Poulton road Wallasey that since closing as a public convenience has had many uses over the years including a mini shop and now is a mini music studio. Not much use if you need a pee though smile

Yes Dilly, I remember that one well, the bottom (oops) of Viccy Rd.
Bloody 'orrible place. You'd have to be bummed out to go there.
