Elizabeth I and Sandridge

By Daniel Hill

During the reign of Mary, Queen of Scots, Elizabeth I was in hiding. Whilst in hiding from Mary, she hid in Thrale Farm, Sandridge, concealed for several days, and escaped  through Nomansland. Because of the service the Thrale’s showed to the future Queen by harbouring her; when she came into power, she rewarded the Thrale family with arms and a broad arrow.
