Norfolk, England – A disused public toilet located in the sea side of Sheringham and was build in the 1900s is now for sale for £100,000, according to Daily Mail UK on Saturday.

As shown in the photo below, the 110-year old two-storey Victorian toilet block that sits on the base of a cliff near a boulevard with enchanting views of the sea in Sheringham, is now for sale for £100,000.

Apparently, North Norfolk District Council, which now owns the public toilet block told the news that it spend about £75,000 to refurbish it, while an estimated cost of nearly £50,000 was said to be needed to convert it for household use.

However, anyone who will buy this public toilet block will need to go down from the top of the cliff or a few steps needed to climb from the boardwalk.

Nevertheless, its public campaigner Sheringham Enhancement Group through its spokeswoman Avril Duke-Millar announced that the sale of the public toilet will attract buyers.

“I am sure it will make a lovely home for somebody. It is absolutely beautiful.” Ms. Duke-Millar said.

This public toilet has been closed since 2006, and the proceeds of the sale were reported to be used to fund the building of a new toilet block about 300 yards away down the beach.
