Market Weighton

Market Weighton is a small town in the English Unitary Authority East Riding of Yorkshire. It is located halfway between Kingston upon Hull and York in the Yorkshire Wolds. Market Weighton had 5,212 inhabitants in the 2001 census. The Arras culture takes its name from a 19th-century burial ground in Arras, four miles east of Market Weighton. In the Domesday Book the place was listed as "Wicstun", which got the market right in 1251. Market Weighton is known for its former resident William Bradley, the largest Briton ever to have lived. The city is predominantly agricultural.
