When the Imgur user rhysfcarter6 discovered a mysterious hole in his backyard, he realized he needed to investigate what is below. Of course, in the unknown pit there is always a risk of finding a dead body, a cursed well or something like that, but there is also the possibility there are treasures or even a time capsule below. Would you risk finding out?
A man who discovered this mysterious hole in the garden lives in England. Having dealt with his own versions of what might be below, he decided to ask what the Imgur users think about it.
This hole appeared in my garden. After closer examination, it became clear this was a brick pit. The depth is about 183 cm, and the width is 122 cm. The house was built in 1888 and is located in a small village of Suffolk in England. What do you think this hole might be?
A little later, he began to dig. The internet users were patiently waiting for the desired revelation. The man soon found a large stone cork and a small metal button in the pit. Sometime later, the entire backyard turned into the excavation place.
Here is a hint for you. The man soon found a pipe, leading directly to the house. The internet users could wait no more and provided several wild guesses about what this pit might be: ancient toilet, forgotten well, rubbish pit, old sewage caisson.
The latest version was the most popular. Sewage caisson is an element of a local sewage treatment plant. Visually, the structure in the pit looked most like this particular mechanism.
Sewage caissons are also called settling tanks. They are used at the design and during the construction of complex cleaning systems.
Given the fact the finding led to the house, most likely the guy found such an old sewage caisson. What a disappointment! What about you? Have you ever found anything in your backyard? Share your stories in the comments.
