Lacock Abbey is packed with history. It started as an abbey and nunnery, then became a Tudor family home. The last owners were the Talbots, a caring close-knit family that loved their home in Lacock. You might know it as the birthplace of photography. After some experiments Talbot took an image of a window at his home in 1835. This image, not much bigger than a stamp, is now celebrated as the world’s earliest surviving photographic negative.
