Toilet facilities

Portable Toilet

Silverglades is “off grid” due to various natural landscape designations (AONB, SSSI, Limestone Preservation Order) and that will not change.  This means we can not provide flushable toilets.

A portable toilet is provided for users and is maintained by the committee. [As at July 2020, the portable toilet has been moved into a toilet tent due to coronavirus]
