And there was a tunnel!

Also from wikipedia page on Gad Hill:

"In 1864 Fechter gave Dickens a prefabricated two-storey Swiss chalet as a Christmas present. Dickens had it assembled on land he owned on the opposite side of the Rochester High Road. Later, he had a brick-lined tunnel dug between the house's front lawn and the chalet."
I want a tunnel from behind my bookshelf to the library :D
That would be awesome!

Love the "Wisdom of our Ancestors" titles!
"The History of a Short Chancery Suit, in 21 volumes" had me snort out loud.

It's all thanks to that link you wrote about, Olga! Plus I had a great time imagining how I'd build a library full of secret door-bookshelves.
