It is popularly believed that when the most famous detective fiction novelist in the visited her sister in Cheadle ,Cheshire that the novelist was wondering what to call her new detective. One day, her sister took her to Marple and so Miss Marple was named by Agatha Christie.
Yesterday, we went to Marple ( of Miss Marple fame ) and did a two hour walk around Brabyns Park and the High Peak canal. We haven't been there before in 41 years of living here. But it was well worth a visit. We asked ourselves why we have never visited here, so close to home, before.
