Lacock is an historic village in Wiltshire largely owned by the National Trust. The perfectly preserved village is popular with visitors and it and the nearby Lacock Abbey have also been used for many film shoots, not least Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and BBC productions of Pride and Prejudice and Cranford. The medieval Lacock Abbey was home to the photography pioneer William Henry Fox Talbot, and today houses a museum to his photography.
In Lacock From Old Photographs author Chris Breach draws on his extensive collection of historical photographs of Lacock and the surrounding area to present a remarkable pictorial record of the history of the village and the community over the last century. This fascinating collection of images will be of interest to all those who live in the Lacock area or know it well, as well as the many visitors to the village.
