Man Shocked By What He Discovered Below His Driveway

A man drove over a soft spot in his front yard. He thought his wheel was stuck in a soft flower bed or a sink hole. A little digging revealed a huge surprise.

Simon Marks, 37, discovered that there was a World War II air raid shelter right under his home. He never knew it was there until he investigated the soft spot in his front yard.

“I was just terrified the whole house was going to vanish. I took some pictures and sent them to my dad," Marks explains. “When I moved a few of the slabs out of the way I found a ladder. I got my selfie stick and put it down the hole where I saw two rooms. My dad saw it and instantly said it’s an air raid shelter."

The shelter was filled to the top with mud, and Marks and his father have been excavating it. They've found glass bottles, newspapers and other memorabilia from the period.

Marks believes the old couple who he bought the house from filled it in. The couple built the house on the land in the 1970s and probably thought it best to just cover it up. Marks is hoping to preserve the historic treasure.
