Blenheim

Well we've been to Blenheim today. Blenheim was built by John Churchill. After his victory at Blenheim parliament voted him £250,000 to build, well, a palace!!

Churchill was also created the 1st Duke of Marlborough and was one of England's greatest generals and yet today he is not that well known.

Blenheim was also where Winston Churchill was born.











Saw my first Darter dragonflies of the year.

758 St Mary, Kidlington
