Lackock Abbey, Village & Fox Talbot museum

The village is freely open to the public and lived in; the Abbey and Museum subject to National Trust entry. The remains of the abbey are pretty well untouched and form an undercroft to the house built next to and over them after the dissolution. William Henry Fox Talbot, inventor of negative photography, lived in the house, hence the museum of artifacts associated with him and early photography. The oriel window forming the subject of his first successful photo is in the house and the one interior item allowed to be photographed. http://www.rleggat.com/photohistory/history/talbot.htm
