After hearing that Conan Doyle had visited Edmond Locard's forensic laboratory in Lyon (France) and was greatly influenced by Locard's forensic techniques in developing the ingenious mind of his character Sherlock Holmes, he also tried to visit the famous researcher in his laboratory.
As a small boy, Bertie roams the village, discovering the area and its history
When his parents want him to go to the "Young Children's Christian Union", an early predecessor of modern kindergarten, he refuses to adapt to this new environment. After a trial period of less than a week, they are asked "that he be kept home henceforward so as not to disturb the usual proceedings for the other youngsters at the Union". Until the age of 7 he will not be admitted at any school or institution, because of his "annoying ways".
Bertie is born as Albert Anthony, the third of four sons to the Rev. and Mrs Baggoms, in Betws-y-Coed, then a small Welsh village of some 900 inhabitants. At present Betws is fairly popular with tourists visiting the Snowdonia area.
