London – Agatha Christie

The most famous of crime writers, Agatha Christie, died 41years ago today. We were pleased to see, on our recent trip to London, that a memorial has been erected to her honour in the West End, not far from the theatre still showing “the Mousetrap”. This play, written by Agatha Christie, is the world’s longest running stage production.

The memorial, which takes the form of a 2.4 metre high book, is on the corner of Cranbourn and Great Newport streets. It contains a lot of detailed information about the author’s life and work, including the titles of some of her most famous books.
