Scientists Removed Water from an Old British Bridge But Couldn’t Believe Their Eyes

There are places swarming with dark secrets, forbidden passages, and hidden rooms. Few people are aware of the existence of these places, but occasionally, someone will accidentally fall across a sealed door or locked room, and the mystery is unraveled.

Approximately 60 miles away from London, there is a beautiful old palace. Future British Prime Minister Winston Churchill was born within its walls. In 1768, the insides of the abandoned bridge got flooded. Lately, two of the lakes, the Queen Pool and the Great Lake, have been steadily drying out. Not so long ago, the decision was made to restore the Grand Bridge. The engineers constructed a labyrinth of dams, siphons, and groundwater wells, and as soon as the water level dropped by 6.5 ft, a shocking truth was revealed.

– The thing is that lately, two of the lakes, the Queen Pool and the Great Lake, have been steadily drying out. Experts were worried that if the lakes were to run completely dry, the bridge would become unstable.
– But not so long ago, in October 2018, the decision was made to restore the Grand Bridge. Undaunted by the $15-million reconstruction cost, work began to bring back one of the most beautiful views in England to life.
– It turned out that the bridge housed more than 30 rooms, and plaster on the walls indicated that people may have lived there in the early 18th century.
– With the help of a full internal 3D survey, the scientists were able to explore the eerie place. They discovered stairways and fireplaces, chimneys and strange chambers without windows, graffiti which dated back to the 1760s and broken and sunken boats used in the 1950s for reed cutting.
– The New Yorker Hotel in, well, New York is home to countless untold secrets, such as a mysterious Art Deco tunnel. This tunnel, safely concealed under 34th Street, goes from the hotel’s lobby all the way to Penn station.
– One of the busiest railway stations in Melbourne, Australia, is Flinders Street Station. What most of these people don’t know is that an old ballroom hides on the station’s third floor and is rarely open to visitors.
– Who would think that underneath the elegant Waldorf Astoria hotel in New York, there is a secret railway station! It used to be a wartime escape route.
– Did you know that at Mount Rushmore, right behind Abraham Lincoln’s head, there is a tiny room, so small that it can barely fit several visitors?
– Rome is almost always crowded with people. And while more than 4 million visitors come to see the Colosseum each year, very few know that under this world-famous tourist attraction, there is a vast network of tunnels.
– More than 300,000 commuters go through Milan’s central railway station, the Stazione Centrale, every single day. Most of them have no idea that behind the closed doors they pass is the most lavish and exclusive room in the whole building, Royal Pavilion.
– Despite the Eiffel Tower’s fame, few people know that it hides a tiny secret. It’s a cozy little apartment near the top of the tower. Gustave Eiffel, the creator of the magnificent construction, left this hidden nook for himself.
