STOCKWELL STATION NO TOILETS SIGNAGE. NOT QUITE KOSHER!


STATION SIGNAGE TODAY.

There you are in-situ today STOCKWELL STATION NO TOILET FACILITIES signage. Understandable that the functionally meagre staff toilet facilities that DO ACTUALLY EXIST in the Station are not being made accessible to the public. Clearly the STATION staff are being requested by Tube users to use the station facilities. Altho just one or two local folk who I will not identify and who I have a great deal of regard for because of their day in and day out STATION vicinity work are allowed access. I am well aware where the STATION facility is actually located.

Those at fault for not enabling local CENTRAL STOCKWELL toilet provision are the LAMBETH COUNCIL WARD COUNCILLORS - IMOGEN WALKER, PETE BOWYER and ALEX BIGHAM ...... .  IMOGEN WALKER - click > HERE - is the useless COUNCIL OFFICIAL who currently has council wide responsibility for THE ENVIRONMENT.  For a STOCKWELL STATION IMAGE OF THE LOT OF THEM click  HERE.   

In September 1988 LAMBETH COUNCIL closed down the local PUBLIC TOILETS that had existed in BINFIELD ROAD immediately adjacent to the STATION for many decades and this blogger has campaigned and complained for CENTRAL STOCKWELL PUBLIC TOILETS to be re located.  Our COUNCIL and STOCKWELL WARD COUNCILLORS couldn't care less.  Currently they are LABOUR but the LIB DEMS before them (BOG-ROLL BOTTRALL etc) similarly could not have done less. Seven years plus of campaigning has produced zero help and in fact it was STOCKWELL PARTNERSHIP's GEORGE WRIGHT who finally arranged for the actually demolition of the toilets - including the women's toilets.

THERE ARE NO PUBLIC TOILET FACILITIES 
IMMEDIATELY IN THE CENTRAL STOCKWELL AREA 
WHERE THEY ARE GREATLY NEEDED.

I don't actually get it that loads of tube stations don't have toilets - what are you supposed to do? I remember when D was pregnant we were wandering around Staten Island, D needed the loo we went into a nearby cop shop - no chance - in the end a small grocers kindly obliged.

Hi Martin. A few London Tube Station did have loo's a decade or so back when there were more loo's generally. For example Leicester Square Station had one and so did Piccadilly Circus and another very very close - adjacent to Green Park Station. The small one immediately outside Clapham Common Underground Station got closed about a year ago and an even biggger one under that Station cot done for about 15 years ago. An elderly Stockwell area lady admitted to me about a year ago that she has to wet herself walking home from the Tube and suffer all the obvious distress. Its endless - in the immediately central Stockwell area there are NO FACILITIES AT ALL. But 1000'S OF daily commuters.
