Meet at the M3 Fleet Services by 9.45 for a briefing.

Kick stands up at 10.00.

We're going to visit the Lacock Abbey, Fox Talbot Museum and Village which is all owned by the National Trust;

Lacock 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. It is known as the birthplace of photography.

Entry to the Abbey & Fox Talbot Museum is £14.50  for non-NT members. The Museum is housed in a former sixteenth century barn, the collection spans the history of photography up to the present day, with a dedicated photography gallery on the upper floor.

The Village is lovely and unspoilt and well worth spending a couple of hours wandering round. There are often entertainment events going on and opportunities to buy local homemade jams etc.

Lacock is a famous filming location and its appearances include Harry Potter, Wolf Hall and Pride and Prejudice. Look out for the Abbey in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.

We have tables booked at the Red Lion Pub for lunch.
