Jack's House
The Maison Spratt

Reading Location Tour 15: Jack Spratt's House

Located in the North of the city but undisclosed for reasons of privacy, Jack Spratt lives here with his family and wife, noted Reading photographer Madeleine. For several weeks in 2004, the next door neighbours of the Spratt's were Mr Punch and his wife Judy, whose incessant noisy bickering cast a blight upon the neighbourhood before they left without explanation.

Later that same year the house was also the location for DCI Spratt's daughter's wedding to the titan Prometheus. The details surrounding the wedding and the extraordinary events seen at that year's annual 'Tortoise V Hare' race can be understood more fully by reading The Last Great Tortoise race, published by Amazing Crime Stories in six monthly installments in 2005.
