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.

St John’s Gate This gatehouse of 1504, is a last remnant (above ground) of the Priory of Clerkenwell, home to the Knights of St John (see right) and once the richest monastery in England. The painter Hogarth lived here as a child and Samuel Johnson often visited his publisher’s offices here. Now part of the headquarters of the St John Ambulance. St John’s Gate EC1

Vézelay Cathedral 1104 - 1170 This magnificent cathedral is situated on the crest of a large hill in the midst of Burgundy. The stone and half timber houses that surround it date from the XII to the XVI centuries. The size of the town is entirely disproportionate to the cathedral which was built as the starting point of one of the great pilgrimage routes to Santiago de Compostela.
