About Bladon

Deep in the heart of Oxfordshire, well away from the busy town of Oxford and it's inspiring towers and historical university buildings, is the charming village of Bladon. It is an old village of enchanting stone cottages that sits comfortably amid sweeping meadows and gentle rolling hills. Here is the 19th-century church of St.Martin, where Sir Winston Churchill and his wife lie buried alongside the graves of his parents, Lord and Lady Randolph Churchill.

Peaceful Bladon, is thronged all year round with visitors from all over the world who come to pay homage at the final resting place of the greatest Englishman of all times.

Blenheim Palace, the birthplace of Sir Winston is closeby, it too is regularly crammed with visitors. It is one of Englands greatest treasure chests and well worth visiting.

Eynsham is a short distance from both Bladon and Blenheim, it is a market town of great charm that shows ancient houses built from stone taken from a former abbey. At this point the River Thames is crossed by an interesting toll bridge which dates from the 18th-century. In the town square there is a 14th-century cross and an arcaded hall. Eynsham is situate amid delightful countryside between the Windrush and the Evenlode. It is a town that is well worth a visit.
