Going underground

  • Published 2003


history – early man was using caves many millennia ago and man has continued to make use of underground shelters ever since: Derinkuyu in Turkey and Cappadocia in Italy are two examples. This article describes a newly built underground house in Cumbria, which proclaims itself as the first such house in the county. In fact you only have to travel a few miles further down the Eden valley from the new house to find a riverside cave dwelling cut into the local sandstone, a home that was inhabited until a few decades ago. But, regardless of the truthfulness of the claim, the house does represent a new approach to housing for Cumbria and is of interest to many as a result.
