Is there anything useful that I could do with this? I remember the idea of a topical census been mentioned, could this be a candidate?

That's the dream! - I started asking for toilet data in 2011 and we made The Great British Public Toilet Map (greatbritishpublictoiletmap.rca.ac.uk) to show what existed. We've done very little with it since 2012 but just got 6 months of funding from Nominet Trust so are having another stab at it. 

Here's a link to the data that I do have (via a blog post) in case anyone would like a look
