LOOS TO CHOOSE IN NOR­FOLK

EDP Norfolk - - Heritage -

NOR­WICH CAS­TLE has four-berth Nor­man toi­lets tucked within its thick outer walls, and help­fully sited so that do­ing one’s busi­ness did not need to in­ter­rupt any other busi­ness, and waste mat­ter was con­ve­niently ex­pelled to ditches be­low. HOLKHAM HALL Com­mu­nal toi­lets were still the height of so­phis­ti­ca­tion when Holkham Hall was built seven cen­turies later. It had dou­ble toi­lets in­stalled just off the main din­ing hall. THE WEE HOUSE, Sher­ing­ham, is a beau­ti­ful sea-front bed and break­fast, con­ve­nient for the beach and town, con­verted from the town’s former pub­lic con­ve­niences. A dis­used 98-year-old uri­nal in NOR­WICH is a listed build­ing. The old­est pre­fab­ri­cated con­crete uri­nal in the UK stands on St Crispin’s Road, now part of the in­ner ring road.

At WEYBOURNE

STA­TION, near Sher­ing­ham, the re­con­structed and re­stored Ed­war­dian toi­lets won an award from the Na­tional Rail­way As­so­ci­a­tion.
