Changing places toilet in Lincoln Central bus Station

Changing places toilets are the gold standard of disabled toilets, but unfortunately changing places are not everywhere. But they are increasing in number.

In Lincoln there are 4 official changing places toilets. And there are other disabled toilets with hoists in them but they are not officially changing places toilets. This is because they are not big enough to be classed as changing places toilets. But they are still very useful.

So in this post I’m going to provide a list of the locations of the disabled toilets in Lincoln that have hoists so you can easily find them. I will add to this list when more changing places toilets are built in Lincoln, or I discover more.

If you know of any that I have missed then please let me know. Visit the changing places website for more information.

This is Lincoln’s newest changing places toilet having only officially opened in February. I have inspected it personally and it is indeed very good. As you would expect there is a ceiling hoist (which works), an adult sized changing bed, a centrally placed toilet, premises screens, and lots of lovely space. Enough to swing even the biggest of cats 360°. The toilet is locked with a fancy electronic key card system. You have to pay £5 at the information desk for a key card for the toilet. This is just a one-off payment and you can keep the card forever. I think the payment is reasonable for the toilets upkeep. Some may not agree. But at least we know that the toilet will not be abused.

This is another changing places toilets with lots of room and all the same facilities and equipment as the one above. The showroom venue itself is very good. It’s a modern building with lots of space and good wheelchair access. It’s a conference centre, but it also has space for activities and youth clubs.

Other Disabled Toilets with Hoists in Lincoln

the following disabled toilets have hoists in them and some have changing beds. But they are not classified as official changing places toilets because they big enough. They have enough space in them to be usable but not as much as official changing places toilets.

1.     Victorian Prison, Lincoln Castle

Address:

Castle Hill, Lincoln LN1 3AA

Lincoln’s Victorian prison is located within the grounds of Lincoln Castle. There is a disabled toilet on the ground floor of the prison near the entrance which contains a ceiling hoist. If I remember rightly I don’t think there is a changing bed. When I go back I will check so I can confirm this.

2.     Minerva Building, University of Lincoln Campus

Address:

University of Lincoln, Brayford Pool, Lincoln LN6 7TS

This toilet is located on the ground floor of the Minerva building on the University of Lincoln campus. The building can be easily accessed by following a path coming just off the road. I think they building is open to the public so anybody should be able to use the toilet.

3.     Lincoln Drill Hall

Address:

Free School Ln, Lincoln LN2 1EY

the disabled toilet in Lincoln drill Hall has a ceiling hoist and an adult sized changing table. The toilet is a bit narrow and space is limited. But there is enough room to use the hoist and the changing bed so the space shouldn’t be a problem for most people.
