Churchill’s Honeymoon?

Officially, Sir Winston Churchill and his wife Clementine spent their honeymoon at the Lido Palace on Lake Maggiore, Italy, in 1908.  But, there’s a local story that says they also stayed for 2 weeks here at The Londesborough Arms Hotel (the building on the right, with pillared entrance, in our archive image) whilst being entertained at nearby Londesborough Hall.  If so, then this is how Market Weighton would have looked when Winston and Clementine stayed here, as this photograph was also taken around 1908!
