Save Undershaw!

Undershaw in 1897
Undershaw, the home designed and built by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle for his ailing wife, is due to be redeveloped into upscale terraced homes. The Save Undershaw Preservation Trust needs the attentions of those who would help save this historic Edwardian home and allow it to be restored to its grandeur as a place of historic and literary significance for generations to come.

Undershaw Today
 This home's potential fate is just one example of today's develop-at-will pattern and how we are allowing our history to be eroded before our very eyes until we can't remember, let alone protect, those things that have enraptured us for generations.  Our historic past cannot be brought back to life once it has been destroyed for a few dollars.
