Murder Mystery

Wallingford also has a strong presence in murder mystery fiction. Agatha Christie (whose remains are buried at nearby Cholsey) lived and worked in Wallingford, taking influence from local landmarks and residents in Winterbrook for stories such as Miss Marple. 

More recently, Wallingford is the location of Causton in the TV series Midsomer Murders. Many of the series' extras herald from Wallingford and much of the filming is completed in this beautiful part of the country. Take a look at www.visitmidsomer.com to learn more.
