Blenheim Palace

Located in a small town of Woodstock, Oxfordshire, the grounds of the palace dwarf the town it is so intimately attached. This is one of Capability Brown's design. He was a 18th Century designer that help create the Landspace Movement in England by replacing formal gardens with landscape design. As opposed to Naturist or Formal, this is to look like a painted landscape. Brown transported and plant 300 year old Oaks here. The one below may be one of those he planted in the 1780's. This tree may be over 600 years old.

The remaining formal gardens here were lame. And that's being kind. There wasn't much else here to note. It was raining and we were ready to head to the next serious garden.
