[A deerstalker and a pipe is all it takes]

Four hundred people with deerstalkers, pipes and a lot of enthusiasm came out August 31 to set a Guinness world record for “most Sherlocks” and have a lot of fanfun at Temple Newsam, a historic house in Leeds, England. Among them were Charlie Mitchell and Lauren Ellis. “It didn't take a genius to know we'd smash the record and have a great time!” says Mitchell. The event was a fund-raiser in support of a new brain research centre at Leeds Teaching Hospitals. Photo courtesy of @LadyCharliEM.
