It may not be as famous as the festival of the same name, but as the location of Blenheim Palace, Woodstock has plenty to shout about. Are the town’s digital connections helping it to get the word out about its attractions? Find out in our guide to broadband in Woodstock.

It is for Blenheim Palace that Woodstock is best known – a grand 17th century country house. Gifted to the Churchill family following John Churchill’s victory at the Battle of Blenheim, the Palace was later the birthplace of Winston Churchill, and is today open to the public. Attractions like these require reliable digital connections through which to promote themselves.

Woodstock – Birthplace of Winston Churchill

Not far from Oxford, Woodstock’s roots are as a royal forest in which Henry II reputedly courted ‘fair Rosamund’. A previous royal palace, Woodstock Palace, existed at the site of the current Blenheim Palace since the 12th century, and was home to a menagerie with lions and other exotic animals. Woodstock later grew as a market town and went on to make a living through glove-making and then skilled metalworking.

Today the town’s history and royal links draw many visitors to the town, and it is home to the Oxfordshire museum. In addition to its historic charms, Woodstock is home to a good many restaurants, pubs and other small businesses, which require reliable broadband connections to promote themselves and do business in the 21st century.

Broadband in Woodstock currently offers a reasonable level of digital connectivity, with all areas, from Manor Road and Brook Hill to Flemings Road, Banbury Road and Plane Tree Way, receiving download speeds of around 5Mbps to 15Mbps. While this is some way short of the most modern fibre-optic connections, these speeds should be more than sufficient for most online uses.

Blenheim Palace is one of the finest examples of Baroque architecture in Europe, and the battle that it takes its name from was one of numerous conflicts during the notorious Wars of the Spanish Succession between 1701 and 1714. Militarily and politically, Britain was largely victorious against the French, and Spain began to gradually decline as a global colonial power.

The architecture of Blenheim Palace was strongly inspired by France's Palace of Versailles, too, as were many other European Baroque landmarks during the 18th century. In fact, Blenheim is England's only non-royal country house that is an official palace, and in its magnificent grounds you can observe the towering 134-foot Column of Victory, dedicated to the 1st Duke of Marlborough, who led the Battle of Blenheim and was gifted this house.

Broadband speeds just to the north of Rectory Lane are very sluggish at just 3Mbps to 4Mbps, although connections a little further north around Rosamund Drive are a little faster at between 3Mbps and 10Mbps or so.

On a more encouraging note, broadband speeds further south near Princes Ride are up to 75Mbps, which is very impressive for a relatively rural area. Services a little further west near Shipton Road and the Woodstock Open Air Pool are also fairly reasonable at 13Mbps to nearly 30Mbps.
