In Oxfordshire, England, Blenheim Palace stands tall and regal, the beautiful 18th-century estate, that houses a wealth of history. The palace has been called “the real Downton Abbey” and you can see why. A monumental country home in the small village of Blenheim where people have been visiting since 1722. The architectural design is that of English Baroque and it was during World War I that the palace was turned into a hospital for any of the wounded soldiers. The palace and its estate is classed as a “true national treasure.” The name given to this outstanding building shows how special it is, after all not just any old place is given a name with “palace” incorporated. It is the only non-royal house in England with the title. During recent restoration works, something ancient was uncovered and no one can quite believe it. After all this time, it seems there were certain things about the palace that were not passed on to the next generation.
Nestled in Oxfordshire England, the stunning estate has been visited by people for decades. It was in October 2018, that restoration work began to take place, during which time, something unknown was discovered. When they unearthed this ancient old mystery, an astonishing story unfolded.
Surrounding the palace, the Grand Bridge has been graced with one of the most eloquent titles, “the finest view in England”. The order of the restoration works was requested to revive the area back to its former glory. The project was set to cost a staggering $15 million! But what was lurking underneath its foundations?
