What to see
Bladon Village & Church of St Martin
St Martin's Church
2 miles SE on A44 & SW on A4095
Nearby and within the Parish of Woodstock is the small village of Bladon.
The Parish Church of St Martin, Bladon lies up a small lane off the main road. It is the church where the Dukes of Marlborough, including the Spencer and Churchill families, have worshiped over the centuries.
Here too are to be found the graves of various members of the family: Winston Spencer Churchill, Randolf Henry Spencer Churchill (Father), Jennie (Mother) and Consuelo Vanderbilt, are just a few of the notable names that can be seen on the memorials.
Visitors are welcome to savour a few moments peace within the small but wonderful Church, which is usually open.
