“I’ve never seen anything like it in my life!”
While Emma James was mowing the grass in front of the house with a lawnmower, she discovered a hole in the ground. As the day went on, the pit grew bigger and bigger until it reached a depth of 2 meters. What was even stranger was the fact that there were some rusty STEPS inside!
Although the pit is now not large enough for a man to sneak inside, authorities believe the tunnel these people discovered in their yard leads to a canal that was covered 35 years ago.
The two contacted the company that built the house in 1984, but it could not tell them where the tunnel was leading. Here is what Emma says: “It is very strange that there are steps that lead down but we do not know what and there is no cover that covers them. Down there is cement and rusty metal. We just want someone to come and tell us what it is, I don’t want to leave such a pit in my yard “.
The local council finally confirmed to the two that the tunnel leads to a drain that has been covered in rum for 30 years, but the two spouses are not convinced, not until someone comes in to check. Despite all the assurances from the authorities, no one is sending anyone to really check what’s with her.
The spouses hope that another pit will not appear, or that someone will fall there. While they simply did not want to cover it, before they found out what was wrong with it, they had to use signs to keep people from falling there.
