A little puzzle

I wonder if you can guess what this is? It was added to the back of Worcester Guildhall roughly twenty years ago. The Guildhall is a magnificent 18th century building being built in 1722 to replace an earlier 13th century merchants meeting place.

According to the guidebook, (sensibly not purchased due to the expense), 'The only remaining fragment of the 13th century building being the garderobe.'
Bill Phillips: This is a bit more modern!

Its a confused dunny, Bill...can't quite decide if it is an outside or an inside variety.
Bill Phillips: It was built for the Queen
I haven't the faintest idea what that thing is, and I don't know what a garderobe or a dunny is.... better consult Google...
Bill Phillips: You will have to visit the UK Elizabeth, we could teach you a lot about the strange people whose language you have borrowed. smile
I reckon Graeme is on the right lines ... After all, there are clues like a stench pipe and a rather larger waste pipe that would facilitate excessive flushes by the inhabitants.

But in reality we know that it is a granny flat.
Bill Phillips: He is it is indeed a loo!

Sorry, no -perhaps a toilet added to the building? In any case worth to get photographed! And I see the gutteridge! I hope Chad will see that! A fine photo, Bill!
Bill Phillips: It is indeed Philine

There are examples like this in Bath...WCs
Bill Phillips: Well there would be
Its the new HQ for the new Police Commisioner you are getting.
Bill Phillips: This has to be the best answer Mick....what is all this drivel about voting yet another snout filling politician into the trough all about anyway?

Very popular on the back of listed buildings in Bath too, we wouldn't want to spoil all those Georgian interiors no would we?
Bill Phillips: Just spoil the outside instead!

This is similar to one I showed of Bath recently Bill. A toilet at a guess especially with all the pipeage.
Bill Phillips: Correct

great way to add an extra toilet. Now where can I fit one on my house?
Bill Phillips: Well it is one way but it hardly enhances the outside of the building Paul smile
it looks to be well plumbed in so it must be a carsey.
Bill Phillips: Correct!
If this is a loo then I went in a similar one in Belgium many years ago that was built on to a bridge over the water below, where of course all fluids were discharged in to.
Bill Phillips: It is indeed Brian but properly plumbed I think grin
Looks like the puzzle's been solved Bill and it makes sense.
Bill Phillips: You Shutterchance folk are too clever by half Janet
I have no idea but I would love it if it goes up and down!
Bill Phillips: Haahahaha! It is actually a toilet but I prefer your idea
I would think toilets added outside for gutteridge commodities Bill!
Bill Phillips: About right Richard. I think they were installed for a visit by the Queen!
My guess is a toilet but I just read most had guessed it anyway.
Bill Phillips: And all of you are right

I reckon it's probably some toilets. Chad will be pleased with the drainpipes.
Bill Phillips: They are fine examples Alan
Whatever it is, it sure uglies up the place...
It's probably the mayoral robing room smile
