On this day in Elizabethan history, 1592, Queen Elizabeth and her court left Shaw Manor, Newbury, in West Berkshire. Queen Elizabeth's progress that year took her on a tour of the southern part of her realm.
Shaw House in West Berkshire has a new temporary exhibit centered around Queen Elizabeth I's royal progress in 1592. According to the Shaw House website, the manor enjoys the distinction of being one of only a few locations Queen Elizabeth I visited that is still standing!
