Across the water terrace

A view of the elaborate water terraces on the west side of Blenheim Palace in Blenheim, Oxfordshire, England. Blenheim Palace is the principal residence of the Dukes of Marlborough, and the only non-royal, non-episcopal country house in England to hold the title of palace. The palace, one of England's largest houses, was built between 1705 and 1722. It was also the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill, former prime minister of the United Kingdom.
