The abbey i found very interesting, but found the village a total disappointment as there was far to many vehicles in and around, so obstructing the lovely buildings. I accept that people live there, but could they not restrict vehicle access during opening hours.

Lacock Abbey is located in a lovely Wiltshire village. The main house, converted from an ecclesiastic building, records Fox Talbot's early contributions to early photographic development. The gardens are charming.
