Winston Churchill’s Gravesite

Saturday August 16, 2014

It seemed very fitting to see Churchill’s grave, as we’ve seen where he was born (Blenheim) and his home with his wife (Chartwell). I was very surprised to see where he grave lies, its off the beaten path in a small country church in Bladon. Bladon Church is about 5 minutes from Blenheim Palace, and Churchill’s parents and grandparents are also buried here. Since Churchill did so many momentous things in his life, he could have been buried in Westminster Abbey amongst the who’s who of important people.Β Β  However, he is buried quietly with his wife in a small country church.photo 5-4
