This section started in Bladon where the very hospitable owner of the White House – Kevin opened the pub early for us and made us delicious coffees, provided loos and made us very welcome. http://www.whitehousebladon.co.uk/
Bladon is the village beside Blenheim Palace and Winston Churchill is buried in the graveyard of the local church.
There is a small Churchill exhibition in the church and memorial stained glass windows commemorating 50 years since his death
The route took us through Yarnton and then along the Oxford Canal and River Isis to Oxford, going through the centre of Oxford and finishing at Iffley Lock. We had a wonderful lunch at Jacob’s ladder inn in Wolvercote village to help us on our way.
