In the house where I grew up the "Glory Hole" was the trapdoor leading to the loft space, so yes we had a "Glory Hole"

Dont remember seeing a door on our two ceilings upstairs. I come from a very small house. Two bedrooms upstairs, and there were, including parents, 7 of us.

Do not google gloryhole.

We had a GLORY HOLE under the stairs. O0

We also had a an opening at the top of the stairs to get into the attic.

We kept the coal in the back yard, we did not steal each others coal in my

neighbourhood. ;)
