Sir Arthur Conan Doyle 1859-1930 practised medicine at No.1 Durnford Street. Unfortunately the relationship with his practice partner was an unhappy one and ended with Conan Doyle moving to Southsea. During his spare-time from his medical profession he became more involved in his writings. 'A Study of Scarlet' the first of 68 stories featuring Sherlock Holmes appeared in 1897. Conan Doyle's time in Devon undoubtedly inspired his later literary work 'The Hound Of The Baskervilles'. A Holmes cult arose and still flourishes today.
