The Horsingdon Transmissions No.79: A Cabin in the Woods

This small windowless building stands in an obscure and overgrown corner of Horsingdon Woods, not far from the Wych Elm. A faded sign on the locked and bolted wooden doors announces 'No Entry by order of the Ministry'. No one is quite sure why it is here.

Roland Franklyn, however, claims to have gained access to the building during his time in the region, stating that he found it to be a brick shell covering an ancient stone stairwell - one which apparently wound its way deep into the hollow darkness below the Horsingdon landscape; but according to Franklyn this was not all - for he also claims to have heard emanating from those abysmal depths a continuous atonal piping, accompanied by the mindless, sonorous and arhythmic pounding of some great drum.
