Autumn at Lacock

As the fading summer sun paints Lacock Abbey with rich, warming hues, September and October are filled with magical moments. Apples fill the trees in the orchard, and thoughts of bonfires and toffee apples fill the air. Winding back the clock in the abbey clock tower reminds us to create unforgettable moments with those we love.
