The Woman in the Bower
The original Woodstock Palace may have been more of a hunting lodge than a palace and it was probably rebuilt several times. Now it is long gone and Blenheim Palace (above) stands in its place. It is situated near the town of Woodstock, northwest of Oxford. All that remains of Rosamond, it seems, is this well.
To find the well you leave the main palace and cross the Grand Bridge to this spot.
