From mysterious doors and secret rooms to hidden passageways and nature’s portals, my sense is that you and I have an unquenchable thirst for this stuff, so here are 30 of my favourites that I’d like to show you, freshly fished from the rabbit hole that is the internet…

An amazing discovery…

Hidden chapel found under a Victorian family home in Shropshire, England via The Chive

The Farla family remember the day they discovered what was beneath the rectangular metal grid in their front hall:

‘We only discovered it because we were drunkenly fooling around and decided to have a look at what was beneath the grid – It was amazing. Everyone was hovering around with excitement. The first thing we came across in the middle of the basement was an old, open chest and in it were old newspapers and bottles dating back to the 1930s. There were also hooks hanging from the ceiling which could have been used to hang meat. At one end of the cellar was a sort of mesh or cloth which was damp. There were also some sort of brick seats around the walls which looked like something you might find in a church. The surprises continued as exploration went on and someone spotted some stairs at the back of the basement. There was more cardboard and we broke through that and it came out to a cupboard in our dining room.’ via here.
