No your gran was right.
I didn't know there is a revised definition and frankly I don't want to see it.

There's a famous glory hole in Lincoln.
Well, famous for Lincoln, anyhow.
it's not as close to Scunthorpe as it ought to be though, in my opinion.

The idea of putting my willy through a hole in the wall disturbs me.

There used to be a christian cafe/drop-in centre somewhere around Dalgety Bay called The Glory Hole.
Often wondered if they had any idea.
