Tales from Beyond the Plughole
A selection of tales of a surreal and not-so-surreal nature concerning bathrooms and the like
In Walton-on-the-Naze, a block of public toilets are being converted to a music studio. Paul Hepworth has been given the green light by Tendring Borough Council to undertake the conversion. He also aims to work with people with learning disabilities as he used to be a music therapist.
After nine years, Devon Police finally caught a 70-year-old male in the deliberate act of blocking public toilets. Throughout the county of Devon, he vandalised public toilets on Exmoor National Park by blocking them with foam. This caused them to overflow, flooding the toilets.
In an era where toilets are more likely to close, here’s one in Stoke-on-Trent which is likely to buck the trend. After being disused for 50 years, a wash house in Middleport Pottery could reopen to the public. Its eight ceramic sinks and a ceramic bathtub date from 1888. They were believed to be part of the original factory, though continued development of the factory led to them having a subterranean ambience.

We hope this selection of toilet tales amazed you and brought a smile to your face. It is something we badly need in this climate. Who knows? There could be more tales on this blog. Same bat time, same bat channel.
