The local tea room in the quaint old
English village of St. Mary Mead was the
gathering place for all the local identities.
It was a hotbed of gossip, and to anyone
of an enquiring mind, like Miss Marple, it
was a constant source
of useful information.
It was Miss Marple's shrewd powers of
observation that enabled her to solve
many a dastardly crime.
As she herselfso often observed,
'Human nature is muchthe same
everywhere, and of course, one has the opportunity of seeing it all at close
quarters in a village like St. Mary Mead.'
Sometimes, the charming old lady
could be found busily engaged in her
garden, casting a watchful eye over
the passersby; or on the outskirts of
St. Mary Mead, binoculars poised,
enjoying her favourite hobby of
Miss Marple was
the delightful character created by Agatha
Christie, portrayed on the screen to
perfection by Margaret Rutherford.
We trust that you too, will enjoy observing
the local characters and identities, as you
relax in the cosiness of Miss Marple's Tea
Room, in the village of Sassafras.
