Witchfinder General was partly set in Market Harborough

The budget for Michael Reeves 1968 film did not run to showing the Battle of Naseby, but Witchfinder General does include a scene set immediately after the battle where the hero Richard Marshall meets Patrick Wymark's Oliver Cromwell.

And where was Cromwell staying immediately after the battle? At the Bell Inn, Market Harborough

It used to occupy the corner where the Coventry Road leaves The Square.
