Lacock, Wiltshire, Village & Abbey

The village & Abbey are 800 years old and mentioned in the Domesday Book. 


And being a monastery, they had a brewery. I saw the sign “brewery” and thought “beer. Good beer. Brewed by monks. Lovely.” But by the look of things I’m several hundred years too late.


Still, there’s always time for lunch. Unless the Lacock Food Store is Open but Closed For Lunch.


Mind you, if I was living in the Big House I could be certain lunch was always available because the staff would keep The Big List in the kitchen up to date.


Following Henry VIII’s dissolution of the monasteries the Abbey was transformed into a Tudor country house. 

The village is a film star, having been used in many TV shows and films
