The cloistered abbey was converted intoa fine country house, and newly restored botanical garden. The country house created out of a medieval abbey was the home of Willam Henry Fox Talbot, a pioneer of photography.

Alex,I was readingsome pages from an art history bookmentioningWilliam Henry Fox Talbot along with Louis Deguerrewhen I rememberedyour picture of the home of Tabot family : )

Below is a picture of the Lacock Abbey which he shot in 1844. Thrilling to think that youcould shootthe same perspective after 163 years...

Alex, are you watching the dramatisation ofElizabeth Gaskell's 'Cranford' on Sundays, 9pm, BBC1? As you may have noticed from a poster in the pub window, it was filmed in Lacock. The inhabitants I spoke to were rather weary of the regular disruptions from film crews over the years.

I'm sure it will cross the pond for all the US membersbefore long.
