Malham Public Toilets

Malham Toilets Noticeboard, Malham, Yorkshire Dales

In April 2006 Craven District Council decided to close the very run down and unmaintained Public Conveniences (Toilets) in the centre of Malham village. These are now run by the Parish Council and have been repaired to an acceptable standard. Various fundraising activities are in place to maintain and keep these facilities open, if you have any suggestions and improvements for these facilities please contact the Parish Council.

Kirkby Malhamdale Lengthsman

A Part time Lengthsman is now employed by the Parish Council to complete a range of jobs including, Grass Cutting, Bench, Fence and Wall maintenance, Toilet cleaning and maintenance. Various other projects and improvements are planned as funding allows.


As part of the Lengthsman Project a Noticeboard has been erected on the Public Conveniences in the middle of Malham and advertising space is let to local businesses and services to raise funds towards the cost of the Lengthsman. The noticeboard is well located in the centre of the Village and generates considerable interest from our large visiting tourist population. Please contact Chris Wildman if you are interested in placing an advertisement.
