Reposted from @ranmoreriseinthesurreyhills This is the scene where Agatha Christie suddenly disappeared!
And this particular mystery remains unsolved to this day!
In 1926 at the height of her success, Agatha left her Berkshire home, after kissing her daughter goodnight, and drove to Silent Pool, a beauty spot, here in The Surrey Hills.
Her car was found abandoned with her fur coat and driving license left inside.
Her disappearance sparked a massive manhunt with The Home Secretary and thousands of police involved. Aeroplanes were also used, for the first time in a search operation, to try and find her. Two of Britains most famous crime writers, Sherlock Holmes author, Arthur Conan Doyle and Dorothy L Sayers were also brought in to help with the search.
Everyone had their own theories, some thought she had drowned herself, others thought she had been murdered by her husband, who was having an affair at the time. Another theory was that she planned the whole thing to thwart her husband’s plans to spend a weekend with his mistress at a house close to where she abandoned the car. Others claimed it was a publicity stunt to promote her new book at the time.
She was finally found 11 days later, at a hotel in Harrogate, after a member of staff recognised her. She had apparently checked in under the name of her husband’s mistress!
Agatha herself was unable to provide any clues as to what happened, as she said she had suffered total memory loss.
There has been much speculation over the years as to what may have happened, but one thing is for sure, we will never know. Even Hercule Poirot himself would not be able to solve this one!
In fact it is possibly one of the greatest mysteries Agatha has left us!

The Cottages in Arlington Row are probably the most famous, photographed and visited in the Cotswolds so if you are planning a visit to this part of the country make sure it’s at the top of your list of things to do.
Tourist tip : Arrive early in the day or later in the day to avoid the crowds of visitors!
