  1. On the subject of public toilets in Stockton High Street, namely the ones in the old Shambles, they must be some of the cleanest and well kept public toilets in the country. These men seem to take a great pride in their job, and good on them for keeping such a pristine environment in a very difficult job.

  2. The toilets only disappeared a few years ago Alan, they were replaced by new ones in the Shambles, which are far nicer I must say, and have an attendant. The old ones were often in a disgusting state, at least it is one change for the better!

  3. I remember them very well, they used to be very busy on a Saturday with all the Market
    Stalls surrounding them. I dont know when they disappeared having not been back to Stockton in a few years.

  4. How many remember the below ground public public toilets adjacent to the market cross. What appears to be a small female seems to be about to decend the steps. When did they disappear?
