We will start from Charlbury Station and take a stroll through the village before heading east towards Woodstock. We will enter the grounds of the Blenheim Palace estate via the western public pathway. A circular walk will take in the best features of the grounds including the lake and landscapes which are amongst the greatest works of Capability Brown, the Column of Victory, and views of Blenheim Palace. We may spot a few of the 60 middle age oaks (900 years old) surveyed on the grounds, some of which measuring an impressive 9 metres in diameter.
We will return to Charlbury station in time to catch the train back to Oxford and beyond (16:07, 17:04, 18:04). If time we may detour to a local pub to make the most of the afternoon.
