My memory is not good. But I think there is possibly thousands of people visiting Avebury each year. A toilet would be good. Far more important than a tearoom don't you think. But maybe it's me.

jackyboy, the toilets and the cafe are the same building but separate entities if you will.
On the front of the building there's the ladies entrance, to it's right is another entrance, that's the cafe, the gents are round the back.

The cafe and the toilets are really two separate issues, both can co-exist side by side, in fact, the cafe would benefit from them being open.
Edit: The main issue is, should they open a cafe in what was previously a store room, and a refusal for the croppies to open a cafe there themselfs, prior to the NT's plans.

Dunno why they can't build a new toilet block adjacent to the car park. Seems the obvious place to me seeing how people want to have a pee the moment they arrive...or one before leaving. Or am I just being too sensible :D

It would mean running sewage pipes or building a cesspit through posible archaeology

Didn't really want to comment on the public toilets at Avebury, though in my experience I have always found them convenient and clean. Don't know if its generally known but there is another toilet facility (light and modern) at the side of the Great Barn Museum just a few minutes walk away from the ones being discussed.
