MONTREAL: They spent a lot more than a penny doing it up, but turning the public toilets into a home was a true labour of love.
For nearly a century the Victorian WC was used as a loo by visitors to the beach at Scarborough.
Now the distinctive building has been transformed by Tracy Woodhouse and her partner Graham Peck have turned the £15,000 former public toilet into a cosy house with magnificent views overlooking the North Sea.
The Gents is now the lounge and the Ladies is the bedroom and en suite bathroom.
Now named Lookout, the single storey building, built into the cliff overlooking the resort's famous North Bay, is widely admired by local residents who have witnessed its reincarnation.
The public loo, which became an ammunition store during the war, was closed down in the 1990s and for a few years became a seasonal cafe.
