Medieval builder using a plumb-bob
Castle toilet. In English a garderobe has come to mean a primitive toilet in a castle or other medieval building, usually a simple hole discharging to the outside. Such toilets were often placed inside a small chamber. Depending on the structure of the building, garderobes could lead to cess pits or moats. Many can still be seen in Norman and Medieval castles and fortifications. They became obsolete with the introduction of indoor plumbing.

The medieval priory of St. John was once home to the Knights Hospitallers, who sent men and money along the pilgrim routes of Europe, a team of nurses trained to aid the troops injured in the Crusades. The buildings were demolished during the reign of Henry VIII, and all that remains today is St. John’s Gate and the Norman crypt. The gate was originally built in 1504 and heavily restored in the 1800s when it served as the Old Jerusalem Tavern.
