AS ONE of the bestselling authors of all time, Agatha Christie was not known for getting writer’s block.
But detective work by Wallingford residents has revealed the world famous crime writer sometimes suffered from constipation and bought laxatives from a chemist in the town as a cure.
According to people who knew her, she also wore corsets, and would allow some residents to use the squash court at her home near the town.
The author of Miss Marple and Poirot detective stories lived at Winterbrook House, in Cholsey, from 1934 until her death in 1976, and at the time was married to second husband Max Mallowan.
In 2011, Wallingford Museum, in High Street, staged an exhibition featuring 15 letters by the author, including 13 she wrote as president of the town’s Sinodun Players drama group.
Now, the museum has updated its exhibition to include written submissions from people who knew Agatha Christie when she lived in Wallingford.
