The Abbey was founded in 1232, it was converted into a country house in 1540. Some interior sequences in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets were filmed here.
Lacock Abbey could be considered as the birthplace of photography. It was here in the early 1830's that William Fox-Talbot performed his experiments into the properties of light. Below is the photo he took.
