Around the village.......
So difficult to take decent photos when I visited. A bright, cold, sunny day with deep shadows..and the autumn sun low in the sky, and I had no time to wait for it to rise higher.
So I apologise for the lower-than-might-be-expected standard of the photos here.
Lacock is a joy to walk around. Take away the tarmac and cars, add cobbles and beaten-earth streets and you could instantly be back in 18th century England.
Lovely place indeed, though I'm not sure I'd want to live there. Too many visitors, too many restrictions placed on what you can and can't do to your house (by UK 'listing' rules and by the National Trust, which owns many of the properties). But clearly people do live there; the school is still open and there were a fair number of children playing in the playground when I wandered.
One side of the main street. Houses probably date from the 1600s.
A wonderful oak beam exposed on the side of a cottage. Probably 1600s.
Bad shadow here, but houses are probably 1600s.
Lovely variations in roofline.
