St Martin's, Bladon
St MARTIN’S, Bladon

Bladon's original parish church probably dated from 11th or 12th centuries. The current building is 19th century. It is most famous as the burial place of Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill, Britain's wartime Prime Minister, who was born at nearby Blenheim Palace. Churchill is buried with his wife, Clementine Ogilvy Spencer Churchill and close by are the graves of Churchill's parents, brother and three of his children.

Bladon is on the A4095 between the A44 (Woodstock) and Witney. Parking is limited – if you do travel by car, please consider local residents. You can walk to Bladon if you are visiting Blenheim Palace, about a mile to the north
