Born in Edinburgh not Crowborough

WHOOPS! Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was not born in Crowborough as Richard Morris reported, he was born in Edinburgh. He did, though, live at Windlesham Manor in Crowborough for 23 years where he died in July 1930.

A statue of Conan Doyle sculpted by David Cornell was erected by the town council at the Cross in Crowborough in 2001.
