Bog Off! Exhibit 5
So near...and yet still so far away. This loo initially looks great. It's clean, tidy and well kept. There is even a mirror at the right height for someone using a wheelchair, and very unusually hand rails on either side of the sink. The rails are, unusually, in a contrasting colour to the paint to make them easy to see.
Unfortunately it is such a small space I couldn't even take a proper photo whilst I was in there. It would be a struggle to get a child sized wheelchair in there, let alone for a full sized adult wheelchair user. It might just be possible for an adult to sit in their chair and look at the loo, but not to transfer. Or turn around.
All of which of course assumes any wheelchair user would be able to get through the narrow doorway.
The worst part is that this loo probably conforms perfectly to any legal requirements.
