A day after moving into a new studio apartment, a curious tenant decided to investigate a mysterious hatch in the floor leading to a secret ‘dungeon’.
A little ‘freaked out’ by the space his estate agent failed to mention, the occupier sensibly called up a friend before investigating the creepy cellar in more detail.
‘Yesterday I moved into my studio apartment,’ the mystery man explained on Reddit.
‘It’s in an old English monastery conversion, dates back to the 19th century I reckon, and now has about 30 apartments.
‘I have a tiny room on the ground floor. Got a great deal on the rent, and didn’t realise how much value I got until I moved in and found an area worthy of any movie-grade exploration.’
He says he finds it ‘a little very scary living above it alone’, but added the space would be great for a ‘home cinema or dungeon party’.
Internet users have speculated it could be an old furnace room, while others suggested using it to freak out his friends.
Another added: ‘Don’t worry, you’re not alone.’
