Found a little snippet from R.A.F. Bomber Commands web site, Walters Ash,(Nr High Wycombe, Bucks,) I lived even nearer to it.:)

Date:1566 - Queen Elizabeth Ist., visited the area with Lord Windsor of Bradenham when a gap in the surrounding woodland was noticed the area became known as ‘Queens Gap’ and is today the name of the house occupied by the Chief of the Air Staff (CAS) in remembrance of this..

Andrew Windsor, keeper of the Great Wardrobe to Henry VIII, was created Baron Windsor of Bradenham in 1529, but his heirs fell out of favour during Elizabeth I’s reign due to their staunch Catholicism. Edward, 3rd Lord Windsor even went into self-imposed exile, dying in Venice in 1575.

Bradenham is about a mile from Walters Ash, Princes Risborough,(my home town), is about 4 miles.


Fame at last, well almost.:ROFLMAO:

From the front room window of my childhood, the top of Eltham Palace could be Seen. Elizabeth 1st didn’t spend much time there, though Henry VIII spent much of his child hood there.
