Lacock Abbey Garden

A thirteenth century abbey, adapted by Sanderson Miller in the eighteenth century. The cloisters are an example of a medieval garden space. The Victorian garden was made by the mother of Henry Fox Talbot. The pioneer photographer took a picture, in 1840, of his mother's rose garden. It has been used to restore her work. The son was also a botanist and assembled a collection of trees which has become a woodland garden.
