Bladon churchyard
Sir Winston Churchill and family members are buried in this densely packed plot to the north of the church. The modern long distance path, Shakespeare's Way, passes this location to pay its respects to another of England's well known people.
Shakespeare's Way

Shakespeare's Way is a 146 mile long distance footpath from Shakespeare's birthplace in Stratford-upon-Avon to the Globe theatre in London. It follows as nearly as possible a route that Shakespeare may have taken between the two, but using footpaths, quiet lanes and towpaths, rather than his tracks, which are today's main roads.
