Undershaw Preservation Trust

The Undershaw Preservation Trust is a campaign to preserve Sir Arthur Conan Doyle`s former home in Hindhead, Surrey.

The building of Undershaw was commissioned by Doyle and it contains a number of features that he himself designed.

The building is standing empty at present, and the current owners, a firm called Fossway,  intended to divide it internally into separate properties.

The UPT opposed these plans and at a recent judicial review it was ruled that Waverley Borough Council had acted wrongly in it`s handling of the planning permission application.

Waverley Borough Council have not appealed within the time allowed but Fossway are doing so.

For an update on the campaign, see here ;
