X Hidden Places People discovered in their own homes
When you’re buying a new house, it’s important to do a thorough check of the rooms and hallways, to make sure you know what you’re getting.
Students in Ohio
Living away from home for the first time as a student can be a marvelous experience, and the house that you and your friends find will certainly live in your memories.
It’s important, when you get a new house, to explore all the nooks and crannies
A thorough inspection of a potential house might save you a lot of trouble… especially if you find something creepy.
Not all of these hidden finds are evil and ominous. A couple that recently purchased a home in 2005 went on to do renovations and found a secret passageway behind a bookcase.
It’s possible that your house’s previous owner left you treasures and gifts behind, and it’s also possible that they aren’t the presents you want to find.
Again, as a student it can be hard to find the perfect place, but you can probably do better than a place that can be labeled “creepily occupied”.
Sometimes, if you discover something creepy or odd in your house, there’s no rush to investigate.
A home is where you go to feel safe from the outside world, but sometimes the things you fear literally live in your walls.
Not all of the odd, secret rooms we found are in America. A family in Norway discovered a secret loft that might well be of historical significance… even if it is a little creepy.
Every house makes weird noises at night, from odd creaking, to a water drip… but sometimes it goes too far.
Finding extra room in your apartment can be a godsend in a busy city… but finding an extra room can be terrifying.
Hidden rooms in houses can often be seen as horrible and creepy, but this honorable mention section is about these same secret passages in historic buildings and castles, which are much more acceptable.
Mt Ste Odile
The monastery of Mount Sainte-Odile is located high in France’s Vosges Mountains, and is home to numerous priceless medieval books and manuscripts.
If the New York Times dubs a place “The Castle of Mysteries”, it’s probably got some whacky secrets.
If you spend enough time engineering imaginary secrets, your real life might well involve them. Dunnerden is the name of a home in Aspen, built by the software developer Doug Carlston.
This concludes our list of hidden places people discovered in their own homes. Which secret, creepy room was your favorite? What spooky hideaways did we miss? Let us know in the comments below.
When Macmillan talked about the wind of change, he was referring to the desire of African nations for their independence. But he might just as easily have been talking about education in England, where many concerns - about the extent of underprivilege, the need for a more child-centred style of education in primary schools, the unfairness of the selective tripartite system of secondary schools, and wider access to higher education - were now reaching a climax.
Tory education policy.
In his book The Making of Tory Education Policy in Post-War Britain 1950-1986 , Christopher Knight argues that in the period between 1950 and 1974 the Conservative Party failed to fashion an educational policy in line with Conservative philosophy (Knight 1990:3).
However, the beginnings of a Tory education policy can be seen, Knight suggests, in One Nation - A Tory Approach to Social Problems , published by the Conservative Political Centre in 1950. It was written by nine members of what became known as the One Nation group of Tory MPs, including Edward Heath, lain Macleod, Angus Maude and Enoch Powell, who were committed to preserving the church schools and the private sector, to defending the tripartite system, and to opposing what they saw as the enforced uniformity of comprehensive education.
In his contribution to One Nation , Maude wrote: The modern insistence on humanising teaching methods . must not be made an excuse for abandoning the traditional disciplines of learning . We deplore the present tendency to drag down the brighter children to the level of the dull ones (quoted in Knight 1990:12-13). It was perhaps unsurprising that the Tories should have spent little effort in developing a coherent education policy in the early 1950s because, when they regained power in 1951, the overwhelming need was for more school places to cope with the rapidly rising birth rate. Oversize classes (forty or more pupils) and inadequate buildings were the dominant issues for politicians, civil servants and parents alike . A wider vision of schooling was not yet developed
