That is how Moore arrived at Benchurch. It was a market town, and once a week it was quite busy for a few hours. The rest of the time it was a very quiet, sleepy little place. Moore spent his first night at the only hotel in the town. The landlady was very kind and helpful, but the hotel was not really quiet enough for him. The second day he started looking for a house to rent.

There was one place that he liked. It more than quiet – it was deserted very lonely. It was a big, seventeenth-century house. It had tiny windows a prison, and a high brick all round it. It would be to imagine a more unwelcoming place. it suited Moore perfectly. He went find the local lawyer, who was for the house.

'Where are you going to stay, sir?' the landlady asked. Moore told her.

He asked her to tell him more about the house. 'Why is it called the Judge's House?' he said, 'and why doesn't anyone want to live in it?'
