track will go behind Mitre Ten. There will be signs to
tell you where to go around the track.

looked in a cupboard and I saw dust, bones
and a rusty ladder.
As I climbed the ladder it squeaked like a
bones. The pile of bones was bigger than
a house! The moon shined through the

When I was looking at the dusty ragged
furniture, I heard a quiet moan ...
