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.
