Few little facts about Hindhead
Hindhead is a village in Surrey. Devil's Punch Bowl, a site of special scientific interest, is located nearby. This area was notorious in times past for highwaymen and lawlessness and was only "tamed" in the 19th Century when the London to Portsmouth railway line removed much of the freight being transported by road. Gibbet Hill above the Devil's Punch Bowl is where murderers and robbers were hung in chains to warn others.
George Bernard Shaw, playwright, lived at "Blen Cathra" in Hindhead, now the site of St. Edmund's School (Hindhead), whilst Sir Arthur Conan Doyle lived at "Undershaw" from 1897 to 1907. It was here that he wrote his most famous novel, The Hound of the Baskervilles.
