STEPPING STONES SCHOOL at UNDERSHAW will be opening its doors for the second year running as part of the Heritage Open Days event on the 10th September.
The school will be open from 10am to 4pm to visit the home of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in Surrey. There will be tours of the building including with the architect of the restoration, Mark Goodchild.
We also have the privilege of welcoming Hollywood screenwriter Bonnie MacBird, for a talk at 2pm “Writing Sherlock Now – Modern Holmes on screen and in print”, covering the screenwriting of the BBC Sherlock and contemporary novels. (Min. recommended £5 donation). Bonnie was a feature film development executive at Universal and wrote the original screenplay for the movie TRON. Bonnie will also be signing copies of her new Sherlock Holmes novel Unquiet Spirits from 3.30pm.
Undershaw is just off the A3 at the first turning after the Hindhead Tunnel when driving south towards Portsmouth. Follow the signs to Hindhead and the National Trust site – the Devil's Punchbowl on the A333. Follow the signs over the roundabouts and as you approach the main crossroads with a traffic light crossing we are on your right hand side. Parking will be available on the left hand side of the road at Andrews Lawnmower shop just before Undershaw. Locally we are at the junction of the A287 and the A333.
There will be a small book and gift shop and cafe open on the day run by volunteers with donations going to school projects. We can only accept cash and cheques on the day.
Parking will be available on-site for those with access requirements and opposite the school entrance 25m walk thanks to Andrews Lawnmower Shop.
