Britain from A to Z - Q

I have written very little on the blog for a few months now due to personal circumstances, but now I am in a position to start posting on a regular basis.

I am re-starting today with the latest in my A to Z of Britain series, which, unfortunately for me, is the letter Q, not the most common letter!. 

I shall start in Oxfordshire at Blenheim Palace, with a couple of images of Queens Pool.
Vanbrughs Grand Bridge.

Queen Pool
Blenheim Palace is home to the 12th Duke and Duchess of Marlborough and birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill. A true masterpiece of 18th Century Baroque architecture, Blenheim Palace delivers an awe-inspiring experience for visitors. The palace, one of England's largest houses, was built between 1705 and circa 1722. Blenheim Palace was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987. It was designed by Sir John Vanbrugh and has over 2000 acres of ‘Capability’ Brown parkland and Formal Gardens. 
Queen Elizabeth Tower
The Elizabeth Tower which houses The Great Clock and Big Ben, which is the name of the largest of the five bells which hand in the clock tower. The clock tower, widely known as Big Ben, was renamed the Elizabeth Tower in honour of the Queen, in recognition of the Queen's 60 year reign.

As usual, my work is available to purchase as original  Wall Art, in a variety of formats from stretched canvas or framed prints, metal or acrylic prints,or simply as standard prints for you to mount in your favourite picture frame. They are also available as greeting cards or printed onto iPhone or Galaxy phone cases, throw pillows or duvet covers or tote bags or shower curtains. Simply click on the  image and you will be taken to my gallery where you will find full details.
