A Fancy Loo



Tucked away behind the bushes near Marble Arch is this little gem of a building.  Cumberland Gate Lodge has had a very varied life, moving sites as bigger and "better" things were wanted where it stood.  The last move was to make way for the arch (Marble Arch).  It then became a rather fancy public loo for the well heeled of Park Lane.  The clock and windows were added later.  It was moved to it's current quiet private location in 1961.

With all those bushes, do they really need a loo?

Oh. Excuse me.
