      Nicknamed ‘The House of Lords,’ it regularly welcomed the Duchess of St Albans (formerly Harriot Mellon) who became a favourite with the staff at the hotel and even took part in donkey races. Mr. Benn was such an admirer of the Duchess that he named his own house ‘St Albans House’. Having highlighted a Wigan lass “who dun good” namely, Harriot Mellon, later the Duchess of St Albans, I have now, thanks to Ron Hunt’s recent posting, found out where she lived in Wigan. I have also come across a review of the following book written about her. “Memoirs of Harriot, Duchess of St Albans”. By Mrs Cornwell Baron-Wilson.
