Today, I am going to Hindhead to see Undershaw for the first time with my own eyes. Obviously, I have seen photos but I have never before seen it for myself. It is going to be a special day.
Undershaw was one of the homes of Arthur Conan Doyle and was where he wrote Hound of the Baskervilles and The Return of Sherlock Holmes. The house is now under threat as it has been bought by developers who want to turn the house into townhouses.
The Undershaw Preservation Trust are campaigning hard to protect the house – they want to turn it into a museum dedicated to Arthur Conan Doyle or, at the very least, keep it as a single dwelling. Mark Gatiss is the Patron of The Undershaw Preservation Trust and I am the London representative for The Undershaw Preservation Trust.

I will do a full report with photos early next week and this report will be our first exclusive on The Umbrella Organisation!
