There’s nothing more intriguing than a bookcase with a secret door, through out history England had and still has many grand houses with secret compartments, priest holes and hidden panels concealing escape routes, tunnels and hideaways.
These secret doors still have a place today, they can make an excellent place to hide valuables, after all if a would be burglar broke in looking for a safe he’s never going to look over at the bookcase, they can even be used to access panic rooms if you live in such places that you feel you need one, don’t believe we need them in somerset but I could be wrong (I hope not!).
Having said that I find it odd that the Americans seem to dominate the secret bookcase door world, after listening to clients it strikes me that I am the UK’s leading secret bookcase door guy, if you google it there all in the USA, I have now done nine doors all different which is good, I don’t like repetitive work. A few have been used as access into new extensions.
Some of the link’s take you to a couple of my other sites in a new tab, sorry for the confusion.
