Every possible convenience?

20140727_175232So.. what do we think this little building down by the river Aude might be?

We found it in September during one of our evening promenades though I am not sure how we managed to miss it before.

It’s not a look out post (no windows, just a decorative metal air vent)

It’s not an electricity substation (no big cables going in)

A hut for the fishermen  to pull on their chest high waders?

The Rafter’s fast food bar?


The outlet pipe  straight into the river gives the game away. I think we may be looking at Campagne- sur- Aude’s public conveniences.

Now we don’t have the trauma of having to use a toilet that isn’t fixed to the floor and flushed with a bucket it’s no longer of personal interest, but in the dark days of earliest renovation and restoration at the French village house it might have been very, very  tempting………………..
