The Cloisters Lacock Abbey

By chrissycj
Went to Lacock Abbey near Bristol Saturday.
This abbey was founded in 1232 by Ela Countess of Salisbury as a nunnery for augustinian canonesses. The fine cloister court and several medieveal quarters remain today.
In the mid 19th century, William Henry Fox Talbot remodelled the south elevation and added three new oriel windows, one of which was used as a subject in the first known example of a photographic negative.
The abbey was used in the filming of 2 of Harry Potter Films.
See what you think of this pic of the cloisters.

Nice one Chris - tried similar at Canterbury, but it didn't go quite right.
