Playful days at Lacock

As the summer starts to fade there are lots of changes taking place in the abbey, grounds and Fox Talbot Museum. Why not explore the grounds, visit our tea-room, climb a tree stump, venture inside the camera obscura shed or plan to stay even longer into the evening at our last outdoor theatre event of the summer?

Camera Obscura shed June 2017

Lacock's Camera Obscura

Step inside our camera obscura shed on the South Terrace to see the world in a new light – the wrong way up! The camera works by passing light through a tiny lens on the front of the shed to project an image onto the back wall inside. The projected image appears upside down.
