An attempt to recreate Sir John Harrington’s flushing toilet of 1596

Sir JohnThat picture shows an attempt to recreate Sir John Harrington’s flushing toilet of 1596.

Great work was done with the saw and drill by producer James and plumber Andy, and there was triumph all round when IT REALLY WORKED!  We successfully flushed down some cherry tomatoes to stand in for excrement.

    Hi Ms Worsley,

    The program where you investigated toilets was on TV last night in Ontario,Canada. You are a brave woman to walk out into the freezing cold water in what I believe to be a nightgown of some sort.

    Great show to watch. I have have seen few others as well that you have done.

    I always look forward to watch your history presentations.

    Len.
