Charles Dickens' underground garden office commute

Charles Dickens's former Kent Home, now Gad's Hill School near Rochester, is to be turned into a £10m museum and heritage centre. Dickens did most of his writing in the garden office chalet at the end of the garden (see here for details) but the rather strange drawback was that it was on the other side of the road so he had a tunnel built to reach it: it's still there (pictured above, courtesy BBC) although the chalet has now been moved.
