Academics for Undershaw

Mission Statement: To save Conan Doyle’s house for the Nation.

Cut and pasted from an email from Academics for Undershaw:

It has now been announced that on 23 May 2012, the High Court in London will be undertaking the judicial review of Waverley Borough Council's granting of planning permission for what would amount to the destruction of Conan Doyle's house.

Over 400 academics and other scholars have now indicated their opposition to this, and their backing for the idea of a Conan Doyle Museum and Centre for British & Irish Crime Writing.

My own personal view is that I fully support and endorse working towards a Conan Doyle Museum and Centre for British and Irish Crime Writing. It is important to me that Undershaw is saved for the Nation, and that includes access to the general public all year round.
