Save Undershaw!

Tomorrow is the birthday of Arthur Conan Doyle, steel true, blade straight, born on May 22, 1859 in Edinburgh, Scotland. And the next day is important for all who hold his memory dear.

On Wednesday, England's High Court will hold a judicial review to determine the fate of Undershaw, Sir Arthur's dream home in which he wrote many of the later Sherlock Holmes stories and other great works. The house has fallen into near-ruin and developers want to finish the job. Fans of Arthur Conan Doyle want to save and restore this great historic property.

What can you do? I'm glad you asked1!
