A lavatorium, sometimes anglicised as ‘lavatory’ and also known as a laver, is the communal washing area in a monastery, particularly in a mediaeval monastic building or a cathedral with a cloister. Monks were required to wash before meals; thus the lavatorium was adjacent to the refectory.
This one, dating to the 14th century, is at Gloucester Cathedral.
It was used in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone as the place where Harry and Ron hide behind the pillars from a giant troll.
