Memorial by Ben Twiston-Davies is sited in Wallingford, where the mystery writer lived for more than 40 years

A life-sized bronze statue of Agatha Christie has been unveiled in the Oxfordshire town of Wallingford, near where the detective novelist resided for more than 40 years.

The statue depicts the writer holding a book and seated on a bench overlooking the Kinecroft, an area of open grassland. Sculptor Ben Twiston-Davies – who also designed the Agatha Christie memorial in London – said in a YouTube video about the statue that it shows her “looking out as if she’s seen a clue for one of her stories”.
