An Uckfield and District Preservation Society event at the Bridge Cottage Heritage Centre
Dr Caroline Adams: Elizabeth I in Sussex
Every Spring and Summer of her forty-four years as queen, Elizabeth insisted that her court go “on progress”, a series of royal visits to towns and aristocratic houses, in southern England.
These trips provided the only direct contact most people had with a monarch who made popularity a cornerstone of her reign.
Caroline Adams is an independent researcher and archivist, and previously Senior Archivist at West Sussex Record Office. She will tell us about Elizabeth I’s travels through Sussex and the surrounding areas.
The newly refurbished Bridge Cottage Heritage Centre, Uckfield was opened on 23 April 2016. Built around 1436, this important Wealden Medieval timber-framed house now forms the local Heritage Centre. It has an events programme which can be seen on their website.
