We often receive complements for our locomotives and trains and we report quiet happily on the overall ambience of our stations, but it is rare that the toilets, some dating back to the 19th Century, get a mention.
It was decided that, as a main joining point on the Railway and with toilets that, although authentic left a little to be desired especially on a cold winter’s day, Oxenhope needed something a little more in keeping with today’s passenger expectations. At not inconsiderable cost, a new toilet block, in a style that complements the rest of Oxenhope Station, was completed in 2014 much to the relief of those needing to avail themselves of such a facility.
Not only have the public appreciated the new toilets but we are justifiably proud that they have received national recognition with an award in The Stagecoach Volunteers Award annual competition. The KWVR were awarded a Highly Commended and a Certificate was presented to the Railway by Lord Faulkner of Worcester on 2nd December for the Oxenhope Railway Station Toilet Block.
