Blenheim Palace is just round the corner so it was an ideal place for @britainshiddengems to stop at. 🍴🛌🛁🍺

Last weekend we visited the beautiful Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire and luckily the sun decided to make an appearance. This really is a stunning place to visit, steeped in history, the birth place of Sir Winston Churchill and now home to the 12th Duke of Marlborough and his family. @blenheimpalace

This gorgeous palace has so much to offer, from lakeside walks to adventure playgrounds for the children, as well as a butterfly house and stunning formal gardens where you can always find a quiet spot to reflect, relax and unwind. .

Sir Winston Churchill was born at Blenheim Palace and was even known to frequent a local pub, The Killingworth Castle near the beautiful local town of Woodstock. So we thought it only right to retrace his steps and visit this pub too but more about this fabulous hidden gem @thekillingworth in our next post. .

Landscape like this makes being screwed around by trains all night just a little bit better

The iron age settlement at Hawkhill in #Angus was first identified as a cropmark on aerial photographs. During 1999 & 2000 the site was partially excavated by CFA & the University of Edinburgh #archaeology department. A trench was excavated across what was thought to be a roundhouse & souterrain. Both these structures were confirmed by #excavation, and found to have complex plans. The roundhouse (only partially excavated) was oval in plan, measuring at least 12 x 10m externally, with walls c.1m thick, and was partially subterranean. Situated on the edge of a terrace, this building had been cut into the slope, with walls forming revetments around three-quarters of its internal circuit. The walls were of drystone construction, built of large boulders and stood up to five courses high. They projected above the naturally sloping subsoil level and into the ploughsoil. 4 partially preserved linear features were located radiating outwards from the preserved wall line & appear to represent radial partitions between the surviving stone wall & a former outer wall. A well-laid spread of paving, incorporating the upper half of a rotary quern, was present within the examined SW interior of the building. The foundations for the southern side of a possible stone-built porch-like projection were located to the SE of the structure, perhaps indicating the entrance into it. A second structure, best described as a revetted platform, was located a few metres from the roundhouse. About one-third (5.5m) of a souterrain lay within the trench, situated on the break of slope. Air photos show it to be banana-shaped running from a second massive roundhouse located upslope. The souterrain was revealed to be stone-lined, set within a cut c.3.6m wide which tapered to 1m wide at its southernmost end, forming a stone-lined passage 1.2-2.4m wide.
