When a cash-strapped district council earmarked the Bowness in Windermere public toilet block for closure, the Bowness and Windermere Community Care Trust stepped in with a bid to bring them up to scratch.

Today, the eight loos at Bowness bay now meet the high standards expected for facilities in such a popular and much loved tourist area.

Seizing the opportunity to do more than simply renovating and updating the existing block, the Trust worked with Chris Rushton at Lakes Architects Windermere to create a focal point with a design for a more distinctive, modern space.

Chosen for its resilience, Steeldor was specified for the project. Easy to fit and maintain, the security doors were finished with stunning, highly colourful graphics that highlight the local wildlfe and some of the Lake District’s less well-known beauty spots.

The cost of the upgrade meant that the trust had to levy a small charge for the convenience. All the money raised will go back into the running of the toilets, paying for cleaning, consumables, maintenance and securing the facilities for future visitors.
