Blenheim Park & Woodstock. 13.5 mile walk 11/04/2015


At 13.5 miles this is a long walk however it is mostly on the flat so it makes for a good day out, it takes you through the parks that surround Blenheim Palace and was one of the most pleasant and beautiful walks we have done in quite a few years.
