ON top of everything else I am given to understand that we have a problem with late-night drinkers urinating all over our town.
We can’t blame our present law lords for that, but it didn’t need a rocket scientist to work out that if their predecessors either bricked up or demolished most of Huddersfield’s Victorian public loos then there was nowhere else to go, and thus we would have a problem.
Our town’s Market Place toilets should have really been taken over by English Heritage or some such as a very cherished site. Like the old Market Hall they were one of Huddersfield’s prime assets, complete with “wash and brush-up facilities” at a modest cost. As a child I used to think that those permanent attendants, like little moles, actually lived down there!
