This is wild garlic.
Lacock is a little village that has been in countless period movies. Pride and Prejudice and War Horse were both filmed there. It is even owned by the National Trust.
This place is called King John's Hunting Lodge because it was King John's Hunting Lodge!
Here's the church.....
Tim told us about some clients who thought it would be cool to stay there. They were absolutely terrified by what happened to them. Headless ghosts, sounds in the night, you name it. He tried to get me to go in but no way. He took the camera from me to take the picture to the doorway when I refused!
We also saw a most unusual item from the past. It was a cooking spit that was turned by a dog....
The dog would run along and turn the meat over the fire. Must be of some historical importance because the BBC had been out the month before to test it out and they cooked the entire mutton in an hour!! (I did ask if they were making that up because we Americans will believe anything but they swore it was true!)
To me the only redeeming value of this creepy little village is its abbey.
Lacock Abbey should be familiar to many of you because......
it is Hogwart School of Harry Potter fame!!
Now on to northern Wales and Snowdonia!
