Wiggy, "downstairs toilets in Harehill Park" where abouts were these?

The downstairs toilets in the outside market. You could break your neck walking down them.

as you walk in through the gates on coldcotes avenue,you will notice a large triangle of grass,they were here.as were two fountains,the blocks they sat on are still there in the park,concrete and about 2ft square.i agree with your comments of the market toilets,same as the corn exchange ones...ha..ha!

The old block at oakwood clock is still there - and they've been closed for donkeys years. The one's near Valley gardens at roundhay park were open til a few years ago. I think, certainly in the last case, that 'cottaging' led to it closing, if you know what I mean...

Not forgetting the ones at the old Tram teminus at the top of Crossgates Road, now the memorial garden, in the central resevation outside the Regal/GEM/ADSA/Chiltern Mills. (That plot's ertainly seen a lot of changes in its life!).
