Local area – Lacock

Lacock village is owned almost in its entirety by the National Trust and attracts many visitors by virtue of its unspoiled appearance.

Lacock is mentioned in the Domesday Book, with a population of 160–190; with two mills and a vineyard. The village has been used as a film and television location, notably for the 1995 BBC production of Pride and Prejudice and the 2007 BBC production of Cranford.
