'Baskerville Manor' title goes under the hammer
London, August 14 (ANI): The Lordship of the Manor of Manaton title that famously inspired Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to write the Hound of the Baskervilles will go up for auction on Monday, and is touted to fetch between 20,000 and 30,000 pounds.
The manor, dubbed Baskerville Manor, is located on the edge of Dartmoor, near Newton Abbot in Devon, and attracts thousands of Sherlock Holmes enthusiasts every year.
Organisers of the auction believe the enduring interest in the Victorian detective, highlighted by the current BBC1 drama Sherlock, will guarantee huge interest, reports the Daily Express.
Manorial Auctioneers in London, which is linked to the society, is accepting bids for the title.
Robert Smith, chairman of the Manorial Society of Great Britain, said: "The Hound of the Baskervilles is probably the most famous detective novel in the world and this offers the chance to own a part of its history."
It no longer comes with land and property but the successful bidder will be able to add the title to credit cards and passports. (ANI)
