The former public toilets in Weaverham, up for auction with Pugh

A public toilet block in Weaverham, near Northwich, has been put up for sale by auction with a guide price of £10,000. The council-owned building, next to the Esso petrol station in the town, will appear in auction house Pugh’s online sale in August.

The former public toilets are on a 1,700 sq ft site which auctioneers believe it could be suitable for a range of alternative uses.

Pugh managing director Paul Thompson said: “We’ve had some interest in the site already and investors are continuing to display an appetite for new opportunities. It would be great to see this site put to an imaginative new use that would transform it into an asset to the local Weaverham community once again.

“Any change of use would require planning consent from Cheshire West and Chester Council, but there any number of possibilities for a new development in this thriving area.”

Bidding on the former toilets, and the other lots in Pugh’s online auction, opens on 18 August and closes the following day. To view the full catalogue, go to Pugh Auctions website.

Since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic Pugh has sold lots totalling over £60m at its auctions, held on the firm’s online platform.
