Another Doyle home to save

The group known as the South Norwood Tourist Board report that Arthur Conan Doyle's former home at 12 Tennison Road South Norwood is up for sale with conversion into flats being a serious possibility.

12 Tennison Road in 2008 and 1892

So now both Undershaw and Tennison Road are under threat. It has to be said that Tennison Road is at least in good structural order.
