Recent pictures of Undershaw as the restoration of the house is imminent following the purchase of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s former home by the Stepping Stones charity. The house will become a school for children with learning difficulties.

The incredible story of the fight to Save Undershaw (please continue to like the Facebook page as we have some exciting developments coming) [Facebook Save Undershaw] is captured in the new book.

Two, To One, Be - featuring comments from the patron of the Undershaw Preservation Trust Mark Gatiss (BBC Sherlock) and many other supporters and fans.

Two, To One, Be is available from all good bookstores like Amazon UK and especially Book Depository as they offer free delivery worldwide.

In 2009, a few inspired individuals took notice of the plight of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s former home ‘Undershaw’ in Hindhead, Surrey and determined that it was up to them to do something about it. 
Banding together, they found a way to create a window for spreading their passion and energy outwards to the world around them. In the years that have followed, that window has grown into a vast portal, through which thousands of devoted Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Sherlock Holmes fans from all over the world have gained (and seized) the opportunity to have a very tangible impact on the preservation of Doyle’s legacy. 
For those involved, Undershaw is infinitely more than ‘just a house’. The purpose of this book is to hold a proverbial hand lens to that deeper meaning in hopes of capturing some small part of the deep emotion it represents. In the pages that follow, you will find an eclectic collection of essays, original artwork, and photography created by supporters and ambassadors from a wide range of countries, all of which in some way address the same set of questions: 
- What is it about Undershaw that has the power to drive such a wide range of people from all over the globe (most of whom have never met one another in person) to join hands in support of protecting something that for many is thousands of miles away in a foreign country?
- How has the campaign or the property itself touched the lives of those who have come into contact with it and what sorts of experiences have people had as a result?
Our intention here is to create a kind of insightful snapshot of these things as both a form of reverent acknowledgement for the efforts that have been put forth thus far, as well as a source of inspiration for the future.
Released on Conan Doyle’s birthday, 22nd May, the book is available from all good bookstores including Amazon UK, Book Depository (free worldwide shipping) and Amazon USA.
All royalties go to the Save Undershaw campaign - show your support by liking the Save Undershaw Facebook page.

Without Undershaw There Would Be No Sherlock Holmes

Your’e a Sherlock Holmes fan then? BBC Sherlock, the Warner Brothers movies, Jeremy Brett perhaps, or Basil Rathbone? Well, none of the above would have come to pass had it not been for the time Sir Arthur Conan Doyle spent at Undershaw - the home he himself had a hand designing. It was at Undershaw that Conan Doyle brought Sherlock Holmes back to life. Until then, Holmes had been merely popular. It was the subsequent stories, like The Hound of The Baskervilles that propelled Holmes to international fame and led to the Holmes legacy of today.

Undershaw today faces destruction. In a state of disrepair caused by a proposed development, the house lies in ruins.

There is however hope that we can preserve this important part of our Holmes history. The Save Undershaw campaign is fighting to have the building restored to its former glory and has already won some important legal battles (including in the high court) and we have some important supporters. Mark Gatiss (BBC Sherlock) is our patron, and leading actors and writers like Stephen Fry, Douglas Wilmer, Nick Briggs, Gyles Brandreth, Robert Llewellyn and many others are giving their support.

You too can do your bit to save this wonderful building. Here are the top five ways that you can help Save Undershaw [the first three will only take around two minutes of your time…..];

1. Visit the Facebook page for Save Undershaw and click like. This is an important demonstration to the authorities that Holmes fans care about Undershaw.

2. Visit Amazon and click ‘like’ on the page for Sherlock’s Home: The Empty House [USA], [UK] the book put together by the supporters of Undershaw - featuring Mark Gatiss, Stephen Fry and many others. We want to make it the most liked book on Amazon.

3. Watch the video from our patron Mark Gatiss about why Undershaw is so important.

4. Support one of the six books that have royalties going to the Save Undershaw campaign.

5. Visit the Save Undershaw Shop which has mugs, christmas cards and various other items raising funds for the trust.

Of the above, the most important is the Facebook Page - there are millions of Sherlock Holmes fans around the world and we want to prove to the authorities that the fans care about the heritage. #believeinsherlock? Then #believeinundershaw too please.

[Sceptics can read ‘An Entirely New Country’ the book about Conan Doyle’s time at Undershaw which has a mountain of evidence to support a world without Sherlock Holmes…..]
