The Agatha Christie Festival was really enjoyable; having attended nine main events and visited linked activities, it was a week to remember. Most enjoyable was the visit to Burgh Island for lunch, followed by the First Editions experience and Cream Teas at Greenway.

  • A quick search on the internet shows the game and there is a walkthrough and solution. It's not my type of game, as it's not one thing or another.

  • @Gary, I've been browsing for an answer to your question. The Village of Turville, Henley on Thames may be what you are looking for regarding the St Mary Mead Garden. Have you looked at the pictures on Pinterest? I'll continue looking.
