From Blenheim to Woodstock


 
Another visit to Blenheim Palace and this time we decided to walk around the lake
 
 
 

 
It was a bright, sunny day 
 
 
 
 

 and we walked along this path
 
 

 
 
lots of small clusters of trees like this one
 

 
 


as well as some beautifully shaped ones.




 

The lake shimmered in the sunlight
 




a cottage, which on closer inspection looked quite run down





a mass of exposed roots




looking closer




 
as we walked up the hill we had a panoramic view of the lake, the house and the bridge
 
 
 


the bridge was designed by Capability Brown





We then walked into Woodstock village looking for somewhere to have lunch.





It's very picturesque
 
 
 

 
 
with its own distinctive architecture




 
It's a Georgian village and it contains many attractive period buildings 
 



 
lots of pubs and places to eat
 

 
It was very quiet as it was Sunday. 
 
 
 

 
 Beautifully proportioned
 
 

 
 
 
 


and the brickwork glowed in the sunlight.
