THE National Trust is sharing plans to update public toilets for the 250,000 people who visit Wasdale, one of the most iconic landscapes in the UK.
The valley, in the west of the Lake District National Park, is home to England’s highest mountain and its deepest lake and is within a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Marian Silvester, the National Trust’s General Manager in the West Lakes said: “A huge number of people come to Wasdale Head and Lake Head and want to spend a penny before setting off to climb Scafell Pike.
“We have been working hard to find better, permanent toilets to improve visitor facilities.
“We want our loos to be up to the standard that people expect from the National Trust and, given the location, they must be very environmentally friendly. The buildings must also blend into one of the most iconic landscapes in the UK which includes its mediaeval wall system.
“We will be sharing our plans and answering questions at Wasdale Head Inn on Monday 26th November. Anyone is welcome to drop-in between 2.00pm and 5.00pm to find out more. People can put their questions to us, staff from the Lake District National Park Authority and the architects, Crosby Granger” added Marian Silvester.
