We started today’s show by asking how you’d react if having just moved into a house, you received a letter from a previous owner suggesting that your new property had some hidden secrets.
Well Courtney and Matt had barely unpacked when they received just such a letter.
Apparently the letter had been sent from Canada by the last surviving member of the Madison family who once owned the 130-year old property house, and claimed to have grown up in it.
Spookily the letter went on to reveal a few secret rooms that may not have been mentioned by the historical society from whom they’d bought the house in New York state.
Following receipt of the letter their first discovery was a secret compartment above the fireplace which slid up to reveal a horde of vintage liquor – unopened wine, beer, whisky and sherry.
The letter continued suggesting that the new occupants should check out a secret room ‘in the bathroom, located directly opposite the door in the wall’.
Courtney wasn’t as wowed by this discovery as she might have been, claiming it was more of a ‘creepy’ crawl space rather than a secret room, but she did find another huge hidden room directly across from her toilet hidden behind some wall panelling.
So they are now trying to decide decide how to use this space.
A third hidden secret room was found in the basement although it appears to be essentially inaccessible, seemingly being no more than a furniture-filled crawl space.
Since moving in, the couple have found other creepy items within the home including a music box that plays a chilling version of The Wedding March.
How very strange!
Also strange was the item chosen today by Margaret Mills for historical feature as it concerned a man from Buckhurst Hill who asserted that Queen Victoria owed him £8.

I very much hope to have the pleasure of your company again next week,
