The disused public toilets in Bawtry are to go up for auction with a guide price of £36,000.

The two plots of land, each containing a toilet block and covering a total of 282 sq m, are on Gainsborough Road and offer a potential development opportunity, subject to planning permission.

A 2021 proposal from Bawtry Heritage Group suggested converting the buildings into a heritage visitor centre, community hub and changing facilities.

Paul Thompson from Pugh said: “The former toilets are in a great town centre location and they offer an excellent development opportunity which could really benefit the local community and visitors to the area.

“Bawtry is a really attractive town with fantastic transport links and so we weren’t surprised to see that The Times newspaper has hailed it as one of the country’s best places to invest in property this year. We are expecting lots of interest in these unusual buildings.”

This auction will be held on June 19 at www.pugh-auctions.com
