While they book came to life through visiting the remaining areas that still exist, and knowing of future restoration or, destruction and exploration of the Holmes castle, the amount of tangential info was a bit too much. What would have helped greatly would have been the visuals within the bus (explained to not be available on that particular vehicle). Happily the pics I took do help me visually recall the events so wonderfully described in Larkins book. Thank you for your excellent recap David.
