Arch at Broughton, 1844. 'Festal arch' in Northamptonshire, erected in honour of Queen Victoria who was staying at nearby Burghley House. The arch is surmounted by a crown and Union jack flags, with a sign reading: 'Fear God and Honor the Queen. ' of the most tastefully constructed arches, in the village of Broughton...where the preparations were extensive. "The entrance to, and exit from the place", says the Northampton Herald, "were ornamented with triumphal arches, formed of evergreens and flowers tastefully arranged, and the whole population of the village decked in holiday attire, lined the wood on either side, testifying in every possible manner, as the Royal party passed, the intensity of their gratification at even the momentary glance of her Majesty which the rapid progress of the Royal carriages allowed"'. From "Illustrated London News", 1844, Vol V.
