The Horsingdon Transmissions No.90: Cold Storage
This windowless building (seen here from the platform of Northwich Park Station) is supposedly another of the Ministry's safe storage facilities - although no-one seems to know for certain what exactly is or was stored here, and why. One rumour states that the wreckage of some kind of extraterrestrial craft - along with the remains of its occupants - is secreted within. That the North-Western suburbs of Greater London might host its own Area 51 would seem remarkable in and of itself, were it not for the claim that the debris and bodies ensconced within were supposedly discovered in Horsingdon Wood. Stranger still is the claim that, far from being the catastrophic aftermath of some recent alien intrusion into our world, the extraterrestrial debris was in fact discovered during an archaeological dig, and subsequently determined to be hundreds of thousands of years old...
Such rumours are, however, rife throughout the borough of Horsingdon, and one must always be cautious of attaching too great a significance to them. Nevertheless, the Horsingdon landscape has shown itself capable of harbouring many strange and monstrous secrets throughout its long and uncanny history - of which the discovery of a craft of non-human and non-terrestrial origin might be considered one of the least remarkable.
