Three guidebooks for the price of one! Written by popular architectural historian Kathryn Ferry, Lacock unravels the long and complex history of a medieval abbey turned country home; focuses on one of the most revolutionary inventions of the last 200 years; and guides you through the streets of a village now well-known to millions of TV viewers and movie goers. There are few places with as much history and as many stories to tell.

This 64-page guidebook, illustrated with contemporary as well as some of the earliest-known photography, introduces you to Lacock, the people who lived here and contributed to its preservation, so successfully done that a trip to Lacock is like winding the clock back 100 years. Floor plans help to guide you through the complex of rooms in this nunnery turned Tudor country home. A colourful bird's-eye view shows abbey and museum and village and where to find any number of hostelries for refreshment. Once introduced, we hope you'll come back to Lacock time and time again!
