A project to preserve the 'finest view in England' has reached its half-way point.<br />
<br />
The Queen Pool lake at Blenheim Palace has been slowly getting shallower over the last 100 years due to the amount of silt that has built up on the bottom.<br />
<br />
At its shallowest the water was only 30cm deep.<br />
<br />
Once dubbed the finest view in England by Winston Churchill's father, the vista across the lake and over the Grand Bridge to the 18th century Oxfordshire palace was under serious threat of disappearing.
