third, but it doesn't come to mind.) Several years ago I came to Agatha Christie; a biography filled me in on her extraordinary career.
In 2010 another episode of Poirot---one of the series starring David Suchet---this charming town-center structure appeared in several scenes. Again, I have
no idea which English town is home to this old octagonal structure. Perhaps the castle will help to identify it . . . ?
I'm still looking for the house you posted earlier with Poirot and Hastings out front.
I'm so pleased so many of you share my love for the old series. It's an absolute showplace for Deco and Moderne architecture. The location scouts deserve several awards.
