A man found a hidden door in his house, and it led to secret rooms, tunnels, and a solid metal safe. Netizens were curious about the mysterious building and its history.


23-year-old Freddy Goodall, who hails from Sussex, England, is fortunate to live in a home filled with history. He recently started to share some of the property online. His house is 500 years old and has many hidden features.

Goodall discovered a hidden door in his home, and when he looked behind the boarded wall, he was stunned by what he saw. There was an array of dusty and spooky passageways. In a series of clips, he panned the camera and showed all the details.

The man thinks these tunnels were possibly used by servants who lived in the home in the 1800s. He attached old photographs in his videos to show viewers what the house looked like centuries ago.

When Goodall saw a doorway in his library in one of the pictures, he tried to find it in the room. It was hidden behind a bookshelf. He said: "Eventually, behind one of the books, I found a hole that looked into the hidden room."



In the videos, Goodall cleared the bookshelf and unscrewed a wood panel to reveal a dark room. Once he investigated further, he told viewers the room was enormous. In between the rubble, he panned the camera toward a massive wasp nest.

The rest of his video series reveals more stairways and an old boiler. An exciting moment occurred when Goodall stumbled upon an old safe.



Goodall and a friend attempted to open the safe using electric tools. Once they carried it outside, they managed to crack it open. Inside the safe, the man found a collection of letters and books dating to the mid-1800s.

Goodall said he was excited to find new things related to the house he had lived in for a while. While the experience was "creepy," he said it was great to see. He told users that he left the rooms as they were to preserve them.



On TikTok, users were intrigued by the discovery. Netizens wanted to know more and also offered their theories about the hidden tunnels. One person said the stairways were most likely access pannels to make repairs.

Someone else expressed that they would have been scared to explore the hidden passageways alone. A netizen said: "I immediately would have called the cops on my own house."
