GOOD QUEEN BESS REPRESENTED AT CORBY

GOOD QUEEN BESS REPRESENTED AT CORBY

The right to hold a fair - which has to be obtained by royal warrant or by Act of Parliament - was granted once in twenty years to Corby, Northamptonshire, by Queen Elizabeth. The story goes that she lost herself in a fog in the royal deer forest of Rockingham, and that, being rescued by the people of Corby, she gave them the privilege in gratitude.
