About Lacock

Welcome!

Lacock is a village in Wiltshire, 3 miles from the town of Chippenham. The village is owned almost in its entirety by the National Trust, and attracts many visitors by virtue of its unspoiled appearance. Most of the houses are 18th century or earlier in construction. There is a 14th century tithe barn, a medieval church, and an inn dating from the 15th century and an 18th century lock-up.

The village has been used as a film and television set, notably for the 1995 BBC production of Pride and Prejudice. Close by is Lacock Abbey, also owned by the National Trust, who market the Abbey and the village together as "Lacock Abbey, Fox Talbot Museum & Village

History
The history of Lacock Village is very much linked to that of the Abbey. The village dates back to the 13th century. Lacock developed a thriving wool industry during the Middle Ages. Together with the Abbey, the village was given to the National Trust in 1944 by Matilda Talbot.
