History

Agatha Christie's books in the library at Greenway, her holiday home

Agatha's Greenway 

Agatha Christie was known locally by her married name, Mrs Mallowan, and her time spent at her holiday home, Greenway, was all about quality time with the family, away from the public eye.

Peek into Greenway's cabinet of curiosities 

We've been searching the collection at Greenway for things that are usually hidden away, and each month are bringing them into focus. In the Winter Dining Room the month's items will form the centre of a display in a 'cabinet of curiosities' and will feature here on the website along with a writing prompt.
