Guy Moves Into New Apartment, Finds A Hidden Trap Door That Wasn’t In The Rental Agreement

Published 6 years ago

When Irishman Daniel Carley moved into his new apartment, it didn’t seem like there was anything out of the ordinary. But it turned out the 19th century building had a little something to hide.

Daniel had found a latch handle near the bathroom, that he says “wasn’t in the lease”. Upon opening it, he saw steps leading down and like a man, who has never seen any horror movies in his life, decided to go in. Turned out it was no ordinary basement for you to keep your old junk in!

Check out what Daniel found in the gallery below!

Irishman Daniel Carley recently moved into a new apartment in England

He thought the apartment was a pretty good deal

The kitchen/living room has high ceilings: it’s a very old building.

But while exploring his new living space he found something that wasn’t on the rental agreement

Got all the essentials set up

“The kitchen/living room has high ceilings: it’s a very old building”

“It really is a mezzanine, it’s more of a bunk bed than a bedroom. Cosy.”

“Nice functional shower room”

“Hang on… What’s this?”

“Looks like a hatch. This wasn’t in the lease”

“Opening it…”

“Oh, a bit of underfloor storeage for some tools and old paint cans. Pretty unexciting”

Of course there couldn’t be a secret dungeon complex under my bog-standard studio I rented for small money, that only happens in poorly-written movies

“Hang on a second…”

“This can’t be true, that’s definitely a staircase”

“We have a dungeon. We have a dungeon”

At this point I couldn’t believe my luck, and was completely freaked out since it was so unexpected. I suspected the dungeon stretched beneath the entire building, so I sealed the hatch (with the bathroom door wedged over it) and awaited backup

“Got a friend, and proceeded. There is a proper 19th century layout of corridors and hatches beneath”

“To the right of the corridor, underneath the neighbour’s room”

“Friend examining the end of the corridor. It stretches further, she said”

“But wait, what’s up there?”

Only noticed this when reviewing the photos, could be a hidden space upstairs between apartments, or else an illusion caused be a collapsing ceiling. To be investigated

“This is on the left of the corridor. Beautiful vaulted ceiling. Didn’t get a good look though the hatch yet”

“Random graffiti. People have been here this decade”

“The basement space is beautiful. Four walls, albeit a bit damp, and a somewhat solid floor. Great headroom down here”

“Curious shape in the corner. Bed, or crypt, it’ll make a good seat for a potential home cinema, or else for a dungeon party”

“Furnishings. Sacrificial altar?”

“There’s a hole in the middle of the room, with very soft dirt. Possibly recently disturbed”

“The staircase back up to the apartment”

The builders have been down here when the place was being renovated a few years ago, but it seems completely uninhabited since. No mention in the lease. This appears to be the only staircase to the dungeon. I’m debating my next move. More exploration needs to be done, but it’s very scary living above it alone

One of Daniel’s friends came to visit with the ‘appropriate’ attire

Friend brought housewarming gifts

Check out the video below for a spooky guided tour of the basement

Most people found the basement very creepy and their comments were far from comforting

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
