The map shows the route taken by Elizabeth I for her progress in 1561.

The whole of the Court and a large retenue accompanied the Queen. The reasons for the progresses were to reduce the costs of Court, show 'Majestie' to the people and to avoid the plague in large cities.

Can you trace her route on the Norden map? Did she go close to your school?
