Lacock and Fox Talbot museum

For fathers day, my daughter took myself, my wife and our father-in-law to Lacock Abbey and the Museum, it was a great day and for me it was great to see the origin of photography.

The house was also used extensively in the Harry Potter films!

I decided to take just the Fuji X100 as I suspected there would be areas where we could not use flash.
