Don't look under the floor boards!

If you suffer from vertigo, it might be best not to have a look at what might be under your floor boards!

The Steer family from Plymouth did just that - and found a medieval well that sank to some 17 feet underground. The New York Daily News has the story with some photos at www.nydailynews.com/news/world/british-family-digs-medieval-living-room-article-1.1147901.

I'm not a hundred per cent sure where the Sir Francis Drake link popped up from - possibly worth getting a pinch of salt ready! Amazing discovery though...
