The current financial climate is not helping us with our aim of Saving Undershaw the former Home of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, author of the Sherlock Holmes novels which is not surprising as the credit crunch has hit so many people and businesses. In short we are now looking for a miracle - are there any out there?
It was here at Undershaw where he wrote his most famous book the eerie 'Hound of the Baskervilles' in 1902.
We urgently require a sponsor or beneficiary to help us with the purchase from the developers, restoration and preservation of this most historical house. Undershaw is under threat from the property developers who wish to build modern apartments. Please help us to realise our dream.
Is it possible for us to make history by saving this house? Is there someone out there that would like to go down in history for making this possible? Do we allow the credit crunch to take the blame for erasing our history?
