The Undershaw Petition

Looks like the former home of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is in danger of becoming developed!  Please take a minute to read over the Undershaw Preservation Trust Website and if that gets your colour up please sign The Petition!

I am a long-time lover of Sherlock Holmes and his clever deductive reasoning, and it always saddens me to see history torn down to make way for progress.  Sometimes this is how things must go, but I prefer to save the history if and when I can.

Also, if you haven't seen Jeremy Brett's penultimate performances as the immortal Sherlock, you must, right-this-minute go find them and fall madly in love with the brilliance that is London's only consulting detective.  I know I did.
