“I should like to leave some account of the business behind me”
The Society was born of the 1951 Sherlock Holmes Exhibition. You can still see a surprising number of the exhibits!

The Sherlock Holmes Journal is the official voice of the Society. The Winter 2021 issue is out now – with the 70th Anniversary supplement – and you’ll find a summary of the contents here, with a link to the book reviews.
