W.H. Fox Talbot got the idea of photography while on holiday on Lake Como using the camera obscura and camera lucida as aids to drawing. 
In 1835 he made the earliest surviving photographic negative of the latticed window in the south gallery of Lacock Abbey. Read more about the birth of photography here.

We have come a long way since then and even I can take reasonable photographs with a digital camera. 
The Lacock list grows longer as it seems The Other Boleyn Girl was filmed at Lacock Abbey.
Do click on the photos to see the charming houses in Lacock in greater detail and the pleasures of an English summer at Avebury.
