Glastonbury toilets..... Reviews
Jun 21, 2007
The toilets at Glastonbury are an experience unto themselves. This was the aspect of the weekend I was most concerned about especially I go lots when I am drinking!
There are different types of toilets and it’s just the luck of the draw which ones you get as, well, when you gotta go…….
Types of toilets
These are the best at the start but become the worst as more and more people use them. They are enclosed and have a roof so no rain can get in and also flush so are slightly less smelly. But because of this they are more popular and you can wait up to ¾ of an hour to get in! As the weekend progressed these loos became disgusting as they filled up and become unflushable resulting in a pile up over the bowl!
Long drops -
These are basically a long row of long drops over a large trench. They have no roof and are open to the elements. You can tell if the loo is in use as you can see people’s wellies under the door and tall men can se over the top of the walls!
These were slightly less popular that the porta loos as there were always wet and you could smell them from a distance. I found if you took enough loo paper with you to wipe the seat they were fine.
Urinals and she pees –
I didn’t go in these but the urinals really speak for themselves and Dave said they were gross!
The she pees were the same thing but for girls. A She Pee is a device like a funnel you pee into the urinal with. I was not keen to try them!
3,220 toilets in total
540 more than 2005
70 toilet sites
700 metres of urinals
64 female "she-pee" urinals
35 disabled toilets
22 toilet-emptying tractor crews
