Lacock

2011.09.23

Lots of the doors in the village had interesting letterboxes - these two were my favourites.

I even persuded one of the feline residents to pose for me in honour of Caturday!

Our Housemartins have long since left the nest but the Lacock ones seem to be a little more reluctant to leave home. There were to youngsters in this nest but I couldn't persude them to both pop their heads out at the same time for my camera!

The flowers in the Abbey's botanic gardens were still looking beautiful, even if I did have a tough time getting them to stay still in the breeze!

This room, the Chapter House, apears in the first Harry Potter film where Harry discovers the Mirror of Erised.

I stopped off in the village of Lacock on my way to Bath today. Lacock is a quaint little village, owned by the National Trust, and you really do feel as though you’ve stepped back in time as you walk along the narrow streets which are lined with tiny stone cottages. It’s a popular film location and has featured in many TV series and films. One of its most recent starring roles was as Godric’s Hollow in the last Harry Potter film. After a stroll around the village I visited Lacock Abbey which is best known as the place where Henry Fox Talbot developed the Calotype photographic process in 1834. I spent a happy half hour in the Abbey’s botanic garden shooting close ups of the flowers before heading into its atmospheric cloisters for some architectural photography.
