WHAT A WORLD HERITAGE SIGHT
ANOTHER PIECE OF SALTAIRE HISTORY

Toilet block in car park area, Caroline StreetThis is actually a very recent photograph. However, the story which accompanies it, told entirely in excerpts from the Sentinel, goes back quite long enough:

February 2003 The Council tells a Neighbourhood Forum that the public conveniences in Caroline Street car park are to be "retained and reviewed in light of World Heritage status" and "Saltaire is at the very front of the queue for its ration in distribution of recycled revenue". ['Recycled' from the closure of the conveniences in Queen's Road]

October 2004 "Work is due to start on the 'upgrading' of public conveniences in Caroline Street car park. Regular readers ... are advised to 'watch this space' but not to hold their breath.”

May 2005 [From an angry visitor's letter:] "I would be ashamed to think what tourists from other counties and countries think of this. I understand ... that there are frequent complaints about the state of the toilets.”

October 2005 "Work has ... begun on the public conveniences in Caroline Street car park.” To be continued...[?]
