The man kept hearing strange noises under the driveway, but when he made a hole underneath, he found something terrifying. “I want everyone to see what happened.”
Simon Marks, 37 years old, discovered something very strange. He has been living in the same house for a long time but recently he discovered that something was hidden in his house.
One day when he tried to park the car, he stumbled on something that seemed to be a flowerbed. The car’s tires squealed and screeching noises were heard.
“Well, this day couldn’t get any worse,” he thought to himself.
He discovered that the pavers of the driveway had cracked and the driver started to give in. The sound of the cracking pavers led to an astounding discovery.
He just removed all the dirt and noticed a piece of metal underneath. Something was hiding down the driveway. He pulled it but not completely.
Not knowing what to do next, he called his father for help and both of them managed to cart away lots of densely-packed mud which opened.
“My dad saw it and instantly said it’s an air raid shelter,” Marks said. “We googled it and found there are quite a few in this area.”
Apparently, what they found was built during the second world war.
“The previous owner must have known it was there and when he built the house and put a garden in… he must have filled it in,” Marks explained.
These shelters were to help people take shelter during the bombings. They think it was built by Sir John Anderson.
“One of the walls has been bricked up. I’m 90 percent sure we won’t find out any more rooms but we don’t know. They might have bricked up one of the walls when the house was built to make way for the foundations,” Marks said. “If that’s the case we’ll just have to leave it,” he added.
Mark and his father have the idea to reconstruct the place and turn it into a museum. According to them, history should never be forgotten.
