Malvern Hills

On a very blustery but fine and warm day Members of the Worcester-Malvern Centre of the National Trust visited Blenheim Palace, the birth place of Sir Winston Churchill, a Unesco World Heritage site and home to the 12th Duke and Duchess of Marlborough.  With over 300 years of history there is much to explore, both in the house, with its rich tapestries, furniture and fine art, and the gardens.   We were able to discover the life of Churchill in the forms of furniture, pictures.videos, and narrative.  The formal gardens include water terraces, a secret garden, rose garden, the Duke’s Italian garden together with an extensive parkland landscaped by Capability Brown.
