That first step? Careful. It’s 165 feet deep.

A mine-shaft as deep as Nelson’s Column has opened in the garden of a West Yorkshire cottage.

Mark and Susan Gilbert watched in horror as the hole appeared just steps away from their back door.

The couple heard a “loud creaking” moments before their patio collapsed into the pitch-black chasm, reports the Daily Telegraph.

When the smoke finally cleared, they were left with a giant hole measuring 15ft across – and 165ft deep.
