Public toilet art
Claughton Reserve is home to 'The Nearest of the Faraway Places' - a public artwork by artist Duncan Moon.
Once a humble toilet block, it has been transformed into a beautiful piece of art that harmonises with the environment. It was commissioned by the City as part of a plan to upgrade Claughton Nature Reserve.
The toilet design complements the reserve by representing the wetlands flora and fauna:
- Egret water birds
- Kangaroo Paw plants
- Stylised tortoise shell.
