Tudor Merchant’s House, Tenby

This is a wonderful National Trust property in the centre of the old town, just up the hill from the main beach. As always, the staff are incredibly friendly and informative.

The “necessary House” in the kitchen, with a drop onto a gravel and reed bed to filter and flush away all waste. Claimed to be Tudor technology, but I think the Romans had similar, also in kitchen.
