Henry’s destination at Easthampstead has to have been the Royal Hunting Lodge.
The approximate route taken by Henry between Salisbury and Andover is traced over a montage of the maps by Christopher Saxton, dated 1576.
Henry passed through the birthplace of his counsellor John Morton and close to his mother Margaret Beaufort’s childhood home.
After a night in Honiton, Henry progressed to Newenham Abbey, near Axminster, a somewhat shorter distance than the day before, only 9 miles
A modern-day retracing of the 1497 journey shows that the route isn’t so different as you might imagine.
