A group of amateur explorers have discovered a mysterious shoe-shaped house in one of the forests of Great Britain.
A small, moss-covered dwelling was uninhabited for many years, so it practically became part of the natural landscape.
Outside, the shoe house is well-preserved. But inside it turned out to be almost completely destroyed, so it is dangerous to be in it.
According to the Lost Britain community, a woman lived in a strange house in the 1950s.
“We found the boot at the foot of a steep cliff. In the 1950s, a woman seems to have lived in it. We don’t have any information about her, as we just read about this fact on the internet. Also, a few decades ago, children played inside this house,” — the researchers said on their social media.
The researchers shared pictures of the unusual dwelling on social media. And it reminded users of an old nursery rhyme called “There Was an Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe.”
The very first version of the story about the old woman was written back in 1794. But since then it has changed several times. Because many people were not satisfied with the ending of the poem, in which the grandmother flogged her grandchildren with rods.
