Lacock Abbey

While in Gloucestershire last month, staying with Alan's cousin we visited Lacock Village and the Abbey, which is owned by The National Trust.

Lacock is set in rural Wiltshire, the village is famous for its historic streets and buildings and more recently as a TV and film location. Harry Potter, Moll Flanders and many other productions were filmed here.
The Abbey, has it's own woodland grounds, it is a country house of various styles, built upon the foundations of a former nunnery. We visited the medieval rooms and the cloister court. We didn't have time to look at the museum as well, but it would be good to return another time visit that part of the experience as well. (The museum celebrates the achievements of former Lacock resident, William Henry Fox Talbot, famous for his contributions to the invention of photography.)
Here are some pictures taken at the Abbey - This blog entry is Photo heavy - you have been warned!!!

Thanks for looking, will be back with some photos of the Village.
