Compost toilet/long drop

Hi Guys,

this is my first post here, and was hopeing that you could help.

I teach vulnerable children various outdoor skills, and have managed to secure a large woodland for us to use.
However the condition is that I will have to build a compost toilet/long drop.
I have seen and used long drops in the Arctic, and know roughly what they look like and dimensions, and this is what I would like to build.

Could anyone direct me towards any plans on the site, or you may have to create one of these, as its something that I would like the kids to build.

Many thanks

Thankyou very much folks, that was useful. Now if somebody could point me towards some plans that would be outstanding.

Obviously I could go down the easy route and buy prefabricated wooden panels. But as I have access to plenty of Sweet Chestnut waiting for coppicing, I thought it best to use the kids I work with love taking down trees!!!!
For them to build it from scratch would be a real achievement and something to remember.

Many thanks once again

We don't do outstanding, just sitty downy ones. The word was sitty and not  *****y
