Big surprise on 1921 Census

Paid £3.50 for a document from 1921 Census. |
I had to, as I had found that my Grandfather Campbell with Grandmother and my father aged 7 were in Allendale at the time of the Census.
Granddad was laid off but home still at 21 Aln Street.
They were in the household of a Miss Hutchison and her sister in Leadgate, Allendale, Hexham.
Not sure if Leadgate is the place or the name of a road as cannot get to the Enumertors notes.
So Granddad had enough money saved to have a holiday with his family. I understand that he was a great one for holidays.
He would be 35 at that date and married 10 years. He would at that time not been a Royal in Leslieís that came later in the mid 30ís.
I will check to try to find out what was happening at Leslieís in June of 1921. Maybe not enough work to go round all the plate markers. Could it be that he just wanted a holiday.
Did, in those days, the workers have paid holidays ? I doubt it.
