There's quite a few tales of musicians being sent down tunnels to track their progress before disappearing.
Richmond Castle to Easby Abbey - Drummer Boy
Edinburgh Castle to Holyrood Palace - Drummer Boy/Lone Piper
Binham Priory, Norfolk - fiddler
Culzean Castle - piper (and his dog)
Seems being a piper or drummer-boy in the old days was a dangerous job - never knew when you might get shoved down a dark tunnel and told to start walking.
