"Demolition" ????

A view of Undershaw, built by Arthur Conan Doyle and where he lived for 10 years, writing such classics as "The Hound of the Baskervilles." Architecturally, the house is not considered noteworthy, and Conan Doyle's connection with the place is not considered strong enough.

If the fact that Conan Doyle has lived there for many years and has written there several Sherlock Holmes stories, including "The hound of Baskervilles" (which is one of the most famous) is not considered a strong Conan Doyle's connection with the place... then I don't understand people. They are really crazy! Undershaw should be preserved for all the Conan Doyle and Sherlock Holmes admirers!!!
