The leaning tower of pee-sa! Wonky outdoor loo becomes tourist hotspot

March 11, 2013 | by | 0 Comments

This hilarious picture of a wonky outhouse may become a tourist hotspot – after it was dubbed the ‘Leaning Tower of pee-sa.

Like the famed Italian tower, the red-brick toilet building has a distinct lean, but unlike the Leaning Tower of Pisa, people are literally allowed to go inside.

Giving new meaning to the phrase “listed building”, the toilet block was built around 1920, but due to soft ground and poor foundations, it began to develop a lean soon after completion.

The angular outhouse was spotted at Westonzoyland Pumping Station Museum by keen-eyed Rod Morris.

Rod said: “It made me smile. The toilet block is leaning on the wall of a larger building – in much the same way a drunk would lean on a toilet wall.”

The museum, near Bridgwater, in Somerset, is home to the oldest steam-powered pumping station – used to drain the Somerset Levels.

But foundations for this comedy toilet obviously have gone down the drain – and it certainly isn’t level.
