Lacock village

Last week, on our way to Gloucestershire, we visited the lovely little village of Lacock. It's yet another place which oozes charm!
However, as soon as we arrived, the heavens opened up and we couldn't have the leisurely stroll around the village that we'd planned.
Hence the lack of sunny pictures. But the village is quite delightful.

We enjoyed our fleeting visit, in between the showers, and no doubt we'll return at a later date as we didn't get to visit the Abbey on this occasion .

Meanwhile, a few weeks ago, I had a giveaway on this blog and the winner is:
Please email me your postal address, Jenny!
Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!

Thank you so much for your lovely photographs as I'm going there for the first time next week-end! Incidentally, it's on BBC t.v. tonight too.

And of course, Laycock is where they filmed Cranford - it looks delightful, even in the rain. Year ago, Nigel Farrell made a film in pursuit of the ideal English Village, testing severel out for perfection. Laycock was one he visited but whilst pretty it wasn't the one he chose (I think mainly because of being in such a pretty place it would also be like living in a goldfish bowl, with so many tourists visiting and peering in windows!)

What a pity your visit to Laycock was spoiled by the rain. I've only been there once - on a glorious summers day a few years ago, but it left quite an impression.

I love your colourful and interesting blog.

What gorgeous photos even in the rain. It certainly looks like somewhere well worth a visit. I love the black and white half timbered building, it's really beautiful.

It really does look like the quintessential English village, even in the rain. Which, I guess is pretty English too! I love the Ed Balls 'joke', but at the same time it is really worrying that that man has (had?) 'power' so to speak. Scary!
Have a good week, Z xx

'Laycock,' I thought. 'I'm sure that has an abbey'.
Yay, I was right. So that last (paid) job I had taught me SOMETHING at least! xx
ps Really like the photo on your header.
