Ladies and gentlemen's public conveniences, Guilford Place WC1 - Camden

Disused late C19 public lavatory sited on a traffic island. Enriched railings and gates with overthrows and lanterns. Planning Permission and Listed Building Consent were granted in early 2016 for the replacement of the roof. These works are now complete and the scaffolding and shroud have been removed. Applications for its conversion to a shop and restaurant were approved but the scheme was not implemented. In 2018 a new application was submitted for conversion to a restaurant and this scheme is under consideration by the Local Authority.
