The Templars invented the indoor toilet, an act which counted as but one of their innumerable heresies in the eye of the old Holy Roman who, in their ignorance of water closets in general, saw the whole thing as a devilish anti-communion of defectation into what was, in their eyes, the Unholy Grail. There are Templar toilets surviving at both Garway and Rosslyn, though neither are presently open to the public who have to use the modern facilities at Rosslyn, or go behind the hedge at Garway. The curious can get a flavour of these at the Rylands Libary in Manchester, the original toilets of which are still in use and fashioned after the then-extant Templar Toilets which were lost during the building of Drax Power Station. In all cases - Garway, Rossyln & the Rylands Library - the toilet entrances are guarded by Green Men of most hideous visage. Also, in the light of Mr Greenoaken's post above, El Guzunda was a Demon of capacious maw otherwise known as The Filth-Swallower.
