In 2014, the Preservation Trust acquired the property, a former ladies toilet block, from Berwick Town Council.

It had not been used as a toilet facility for several years. The inside was stripped of the conveniences and it was used as a general store for the roads and parks departments. The Trust tried to maintain as much as possible of the original structure and the Victorian Minton tiled floor.
