Deadly Underwater Gnome Garden Returns —
In past entries I've written about gnomes that have mysteriously disappeared from gardens
. Now I think I know where the gnomes have gone. They've travelled to the secret gnome garden
that lurks beneath the waters of Wastwater in the Lake District. Authorities report that a gnome garden (which even had a tiny picket fence) was removed from the bottom of the lake a few years ago after some divers died while spending too long searching for it. Now the gnome garden has reappeared, but even deeper beneath the lake, beyond the reach of police divers. Obviously the police are worried that once again divers will be unable to resist the siren call of the gnome garden and perish in the search for it. I think this must be the underwater version of Midgetville

I managed to find a picture of the underwater gnome garden in this recent article
from Cumbria Online.
