About

THIS EVENT IS PART OF THE ENGLISH RIVIERA WALKING FESTIVAL

This breath taking route takes guests beneath Brunel’s railway bridge to Broadsands beach and onto Elberry Cove with its renowned aqua blue waters. From here, we walk to Churston village, past the church that Agatha regularly attended and onto Churston train station. Through Galmpton village, we follow the beautiful Dart estuary and arrive at Greenway, Agatha’s summer home, before returning to Galmpton via a woodland route to the start point.

Visit Elberry Cove – one of Agatha’s favourite beaches, where the remains of Lord Churston’s bathing house can be found

Walk along the lane where Sir Carmichael Clarke is murdered in the ABC Murders

Cross the golf course that was the inspiration for Agatha’s third book, Murder on the Links.

See the stain glass window that Agatha donated to Churston church.

Take a walk around Churston railway station, which has changed little since 1930’s when Poirot arrived here from London in the ABC murders.

Pass Galmpton primary school where Agatha presented an annual writing prize

Walk through the Greenway estate, where guests will see her beautiful croquet lawn and Agatha’s boathouse which was the scene of the crime in Dead Man’s Folly.
