With the help of several kind and enthusiastic gentlemen, Undershaw has now made the Wikipedia at the following link: My gratitude and thanks go out to Paul Spiring who along with Alistair Duncan have been complete rocks to the Trust and have contributed so much to the campaign.

I am proud to say that I will be meeting with Alistair in several weeks and honoured to say that the purpose of this meeting is tied in with his new book on Doyle's time at Undershaw. A 'must' for anyone interested in this famous building, Hindhead's landmark and the history behind the man who created Sherlock Holmes.

A TV documentary has also been discussed and an offer of help with this could be in the offering. I would like to see the theme of this documetary focus on Doyle's 10 years at Undershaw, his presence in and around Hindhead, and those he associated with, such as the likes of Flora Thompson (Larkrise to Candleford), Bram Stoker (author of Dracula), Professor John Tyndall (his neighbour) J M Barrie (author of Peter Pan) and Undershaw's demise since 2004 with the grand finale of our efforts to save the property and whatever the outcome is likely to be.
