Here are more of my photos of Blenheim Palace in Woodstock, Oxfordshire.
When you enter the Blenheim Palace grounds from the main streets of Woodstock you go through a triumphal arch gateway that was commissioned by the 1st Duchess, Sarah Churchill. The gateway is a memorial to her husband John Churchill, the 1st Duke, and was built about 20 or so years after his all too early death.
This is the quintessential view of Blenheim Palace and Park that you see upon entering through the gate and looking to your right. Really sweet!!
Looking towards the great pillar way off in the distance which commemorates John Churchill’s victories for Queen and country. The main gate of the palace is directly behind me.
The long and lovely walk to the great pillar.
The most illustrious John Churchill, First Duke of Marlborough and victor of the battle of Blenheim and the war of Spanish succession.
