The Name Behind the Gladstone Bag

William Ewart Gladstone was elected Conservative Member of Parliament for Newark-on-Trent in 1832 and served for more than ten years.  Gladstone’s constituency office was based at the Clinton Arms Hotel in Newark’s market place where a plaque on the wall marks his acceptance speech from the balcony of the hotel.

Gladstone eventually served four terms as Prime Minister of Britain and Ireland ending 1894.
