The toilets at Blackburn Market have had a makeover.

The refurbishment of the public conveniences is the first since the retail hub opened in 2011.

Four female cubicles and three male cubicles have been transformed, with a new baby upgraded changing unit created.

The refurbishment was done by Blackburn with Darwen Council’s corporate building team.

This is the first time the toilets have been refurbished since the market opened in 2011 and the market now boasts 62 stalls to eat at or browse around.

They are maintained at least every hour by staff.

For disabled visitors, there is a stand-alone disabled bathroom on the floor of the market and a disabled changing room within shop mobility.

Martin Eden, Blackburn with Darwen Council's strategic director of environment and operations, said: "I’m so glad to see this refurbishment project completed in what is such a busy and thriving destination.

"We have recently increased the amount of space available for people to remain in the market to enjoy their food and drink and we now have updated facilities to match.

"Thank you to the team who worked hard on the refurbishment, while also working on other projects.

"I hope people will continue to visit the market for the vast array of food and products on offer."

Blackburn market is open six days a week – Monday to Saturday from 8.30am to 5.30pm.
