Frank - when we moved to very rural Suffolk in the mid 50s, unlike many of the older houses in the village we had an indoor flush toilet. However the very old farmer across the field hadn't got such new-fangled stuff, and he and his equally elderly wife still used the brick-built bucket lavvy in their back garden.
Their back garden adjoined our woodland where we used to play and quite often we children would sneak through the dry ditch that separated our farms and use their 'facilities' ... much more fun than our flush toilet as theirs was a 'two seater'
