Lacock Abbey, Wiltshire

Established in 1232 for the Order of Augustinian Cannonesses, Lacock Abbey remained in their care for some 300 years before Henry VIII closed it. It was later purchased by William Sharrington who turned the property into a family home, demolishing some of the original abbey but keeping the cloisters and adjacent rooms (which still exist today). Considerably later, Fox-Talbert, famous for developing the photographic negative process, bought the property. It now houses a museum to his work.

    Now here I have been ! I really liked the village and wanted to visit that, its used quite a lot in street scenes for tv dramas, though I believe that Lacock abbey was used in Harry Potter, it was swarming with Japanese girls when we were there... perhaps Potter fans !

    It was here that I ran out of card space on the camera so the only shots of the village were done with the GoPro.
