A sales pitch from Pugh reads: “A freehold site of approximately 0.098 acres with a former public WC situated on site.

"Previously used as a car sales pitch but could be used for alternative uses subject to the necessary consents.

"The site benefits from running water, mains connected drainage and an electricity meter already being in place and operational.”

The promotional material boasts of Moorends’ links and adds: “Located at the end of a parade of shops on the corner of Marshland Road and Wembley Road, Moorends is a village approximately 1.5 miles north of Thorne, 12 miles north east of Doncaster and 16 miles west of Scunthorpe. Moorends benefits from easy access to the M18 (J6) and Thorne North train station which provides links to Doncaster, Hull and Scarborough.”

The toilets will be auctioned online on June 22 with bidding opening at 10am.
