We know that our toilets are tired and old, and we need more of them available for visitors to Baddesley Clinton - something which was confirmed by a visitor survey. Now a project is underway to improve the facilities. Find out what's changing and how the work is going.

What's in the plans?

We began planning the refurbishment and extension of the toilet block back in 2019, but funding and planning issues and the pandemic, meant that it was delayed.

The gardeners' greenhouse was in the way of the proposed extension, so Phase 1 of the project involved building a new one on a site behind the restaurant. This was completed early in 2022.

Phase 2 has begun

We've started renovating and extending the building to include a total of 14 new unisex toilets, including two accessible toilets and two baby changing facilities. This will increase capacity, reduce queues, and meet higher standards of service and accessibility for visitors.

Temporary toilets will be available while this work takes place, and you may hear the building works and see machinery being moved around site. This shouldn't disrupt your visit, but we're sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

Work is due to finish in spring 2023.

Every penny spent at Baddesley helps us to support and care for this special place.

Thank you for your support.
