By 1991 the summer excursions of the Society had become something of a tradition and that year saw the Society spend a weekend in Winchester, a city that has excellent canonical credentials.
As this handbook shows these credentials may be even stronger than hitherto imagined. During the course of research it was possible to link the ancestry of Dr Watson with a sixteenth century Bishop of Winchester and, even more important, to conclude that Holmes had undoubtedly received his education at Winchester College.
The title of the expedition and of the Handbook derives from part of the famous passage in The Bruce Partington Plans about Mycroft. It refers to the fact that three Winchester stories by chance refer respectively the metals copper, silver and (through Neil Gibson, the Gold King) gold.
