Agatha Christie's England: A Map and Guide is a guide map authored by Caroline Crampton, illustrated by Ryan Bosse and published by Herb Lester Associates in Sep 2021. It comprises a single foldout about the size of four sheets of A4 showing a map of the UK and featuring 44 locations associated with Agatha Christie. Also included are notes about each of the locations.

According to Crampton, some places are obvious, such as Greenway and Wallingford (Winterbrook), being places where Christie lived and worked. Others had to be researched for sources such as Christie's correspondence and from hints in her stories. Examples of places include the village of Marple in Greater Manchester (said to have inspired the character name), Burgh Island and Abney Hall (location of several of her novels), the hotel which inspired At Bertram's Hotel. A swimming pool in the residence of Christie's friend Francis L. Sullivan inspired The Hollow and this is mentioned in the dedication of the novel itself.[1]
