Water and drain

You can see here the remains of a 19-century lead pipe bringing water, and a drainage or sewer pipe.

We do not yet know why they are exactly here. 

Previous research assumes or speculates that the Burial Ground had a water supply for ritual washing of hands after a burial. Possibly this was such, or possibly it was assocated with the domestic function of the caretaker's cottage. 

It does not seem the most logical place for the cottage, even if the small area now filled with our wheelbarrows etc was once a toilet.

Can you think why it is here?

(By the way there is a water tap near the gate, but this is very recent, to help maintain the cemetery.)
