mystery pipe in outside loo

In a house I am about to renovate, there is a strange plastic pipe in
the outside toilet. My house has flat-roofed kitchen extension
including the loo, and next door has an ajoined pitched roof extension.
There is a black plastic drainpipe running the width of my outside loo,
terminating in a grille on the outside wall next to the door. The other
end of the pipe seems to go into the wall, as if it is going through to
next door, but I cannot see if it goes in or not without digging out
some brick etc. Eventually I will be able in investigate properly, but,
has anyone seen anything like this, or know what it could be ?

ASCII art follows, please view in fixed font.

Can't you just go round and ask them what they have on their side of the
party wall?
I will be, since I will be knocking down my extension and building a
larger
one with a pitched roof level with theirs, against their wall (not sure
if party,
or just on their side). My extension looks much older than theirs, so
it may be
redundant. I could try shouting "hello" down the pipe and see if a
little voice
shouts back !
