A bored dad has created the ultimate fort for his son out of cardboard boxes during the coronavirus lockdown – complete with a moving drawbridge.

Steve Wilson, 52, built the impressive structure – dubbed ‘Castle Covid’ – over a four-day period while in isolation.

He constructed the castle in a room at his business The Square – a soft play centre in Wells, Somerset – after getting tired of playing board games.

Steve and four-year-old Sebastian used old sandwich boxes and a tape to create the stronghold.

The ‘building’ features a moving draw-bridge, corridors, turrets and a hiding place.

Steve said: ‘What was going to be a four-hour job turned into days of building.

‘I’ll almost be sad to see it demolished – either by Sebastian from playing in it or when we reopen.’ 

Facebook users were amazed by the castle and heaped praise on Steve for building it

Pictures of the castle were posted on Facebook on Thursday – and have already been ‘liked’ nearly 300 times. 

The caption reads: ‘When life gives you boxes…build a castle, obviously!’ One person commented below: ‘That’s totally awesome!’

Another added: ‘This is fab! Lucky boy!’ A third said: ‘Bit bored Steve?! Hopefully you’ll be overrun with kids soon..’
