cane hill | the strange case of the mysterious basement

What of English Partnerships' claim of an underground room full of untouched hospital goodies? Its believability persisted until Keith asked about the rumour of a tunnel from the Administration basement to a small cottage which stood by the tennis courts. English Partnerships nodded eagerly and quickly confirmed its existence; but also mentioned that it was in a dangerous state, full of nine foot deep pits.

At this point the tunnel and the fantasy basement both disappeared in a flash of incredulity.
