Kennet Valley TR Group enjoy a visit to Lacock Village
Kennet Valley TR Group enjoyed their last run of 2019 which was to Lacock Village. The village is owned almost in its entirety by the National Trust and attracts many visitors by virtue of its unspoiled appearance.
There is also Lacock Abbey, a country house with monastic roots, once home to William Henry Fox Talbot, inventor of the photographic negative.
It has been used for many film and television sets including Harry Potter, Cranfield, Emma, Moll Flanders and Downton Abbey the film.
Arranged by Denis & Val Carter, 7 KVG cars (no TR's as they were all tucked up in their warm garages) that met at Tot Hill services (A34), and took the Tulip Run which ambled through Ball Hill, Kintbury, Sanham Green, Burbage, Pewsey, Alton Barnes and finally to Lacock.
They all had lunch together at The George Inn, a 14th century Inn, there was lots of convivial banter and chat went on, some members then visited the Abbey after lunch and a walk round the village. The weather was mild but damp and misty but really not bad for November which lead to a happy bunch of people.
Thanks for the report an pictures to Val Carter, and a thanks to John & Jackie Edmonds for the Tulip Run.
