- cess-pit immediately south east of
Lower Calamansack Farmhouse and Lower
Calamansack Cottage

GV II


Terrace retaining wall and integral cess-pit with adjacent double privy. Probably
late C18 or early C19, privy probably rebuilt circa mid C19. The terrace retaining
wall is immediately in front of Lower Calamansack Farmhouse qv. and Lower Calamansack
Cottage qv. It is built of slate rubble with granite coping. In front of the
farmhouse there is a flight of granite steps down to the garden (former orchard). At
the centre of the retaining wall there is an integral cess-pit which is square and
has high shale walls with granite quoins and coping and a flight of granite steps for
access to the pit. Above and behind the pit there is a pair of privies which back
onto and issues into the pit through a stone-lined shaft. The pair of privies is
built of red brick with an asbestos slate hipped roof with red clay ridge tiles. One
privy serves Lower Calamansack Farmhouse and the other serves Lower Calamansack
Cottage.
Interior: Only one privy interior was inspected; it now has a C20 W.C.
