What a toilet trip!

Marco has been telling me about toilet trips so I decided to go on one and it was worth it!
I got some great finds for you all!
Rare High Level Toilet With BELL SIPHON!
Now this one is my favourite. It has the rare high level cistern with a bell siphon.

Finding this toilet made my day I was so happy when I saw it. It is located at the library in Kettering, Northamptonshire, for those who want to see it. You have to ask if you can use their toilet and they take you to this.
As mentioned above it has a high level cistern using a bell siphon, it is also combined with my favourite brand of toilets! Royal Doulton!
This is what cisterns with the bell siphon look like, you can see the bit at the bottom where the bell is held. These are so rare this is the second one I've only seen in my whole life! I got very excited when I saw this. Flushing it was fun, it's lovely and loud very powerful aswell.

Here's the handle, it's the original one aswell. Modern ones don't have this, it's a rare sight.

The bowl looks like a modern one but it isn't, it's Royal Doulton. This one doesn't have a very long hole like most of the other Royal Doultons I've seen. I'd say this bowl is rare.
Just a picture of the logo.

Enjoy the video!

RARE Royal Doulton Childs Toilet

Ever seen a toilet this small? Neither had I until I found this.

It is in the ladies toilets at the Sunday School buildings in Rothwell Northamptonshire. I had to sneak in there while no one was in there. They aren't used much anyway. (My mum kept watch for me aswell)

Sadly the seat has been cracked in half by vandles.

Here's the cistern, it's low level. It looks like the original too me and the handle aswell.
This picture shows a good view of the bowl. You can just see the logo, I forgot to get a close up but it is just like any other Royal Doulton logo round here.

The hole is way too big, I'm unsure of it's flushing cababilities. It has reasonable pressure, and it flushes good with a small bowl like that.


Royal Doulton in Gents
Here's the regular sized toilet in the gents, it's Royal Doulton again and has the same cistern as the other.

If you look, the hole is off shape and square-ish. Don't know why that is.


Twyfords Toilet and Urinal
Well at the methodist church in Rothwell there was an event going on so I thought I'd go in and shoot a video, get some brand logos and a video for you.

It looks just like a normal toilet too me, quite modern not old.

It's very powerful though, it splashes back sometimes, the handle gives a nice springy effect when you push it.
There's the handle, it's a Twyfords one again. I think this toilet has all it's original parts to it.
I'm unsure if the bowl is Twyfords but I think it is, and no that isn't my paper.
Here's a close up of the badge on the cistern.
Here's one of the urinals, it has the same design as the other urinal I posted but different logo like Marco said.
I am going to make another post with some more pictures from my toilet trip as this one is a bit too long ...

It was very fun! I wonder how much water I wasted in that day.

Well the tiny Royal Doulton, the large Royal Doulton, the high level (They use so much water it's unbelievable), the Twyfords, the pay toilet which would use loads of water to clean, the backwards handled toilet, the one in Bakers oven, the one in Fullers Cafe, plus actually using toilets. Oh dear I weren't very enviromantally friendly that day!

I don't care what other people think I love the royal doulton toilet seats I actually don't like celmac sonata toilet seats and I don't like celmac calypso' s either but I love high cistern bogs no useless dryer crap technology.
