Default Mystery rooms found hidden under Blenheim Palace

This story is from BBC UK News>England>Oxfordshire:

Blenheim Palace dredging project reveals hidden rooms - BBC News
Quote:
A series of mysterious rooms have been revealed after lakes at Blenheim Palace were drained in a bid to save a bridge.

The stately home needs to remove 400,000 tonnes of silt to protect the Grade I-listed Grand Bridge.

The bridge contains more than 30 rooms that were flooded when Lancelot "Capability" Brown created lakes on the estate in the 1760s.
