Lunch Crawl around Wiltshire part 1

Last week I went away for four days.  On the first day I drove to The Bull at Hinton to meet my friend Helen for lunch.  We last got together at Festival of Quilts last August so we had quite a bit of catching up to do.

After lunch I drove to Lacock, where I arrived in time to go round Lacock Abbey and its photography museum.

The Cloisters

The Courtyard

Lots of Wild Garlic

Lacock Abbey

Next I checked into the Sign of the Angel - a restaurant with rooms.  It's a very quirky place.  The door to my room had gaps between the door and the frame and also in the door itself.

There was a fabulous guest lounge which I made good use of.

Lacock is frequently used as a filming location for costume dramas like the BBC version of Pride and Prejudice amongst many other programmes.

I was hoping that by staying in the village I would be able to walk round after the visitors had gone and see it without people and cars.  I managed to walk round without the visitors, however there are far more poeple living in the village than I thought so there were lots of residents cars.  I tried my best to get car free photos.

I also went for a walk outside the village and found a really good place to photograph the Abbey.

So one lunch meeting down, and two to come.  Such fun.

Day 2 & 3 in my next post.

Thanks for joining me today.
