At one time Lacock was a town rather than a village and a busy
town at that. It was on the main London to Bristol road until a new route through Chippenham took away the traffic.
The town/village had its own market each week and the streets were full of shops. Lacock had its own butchers, bakers and grocers. Not to mention three farms, carpenters, wheelwrights, several pub and a brewery.
Now just a few shops and the pubs supported by the tourist trade remain. There was a mill in Lacock and several of the houses had looms on their upper floors, all in all a prosperous little place. The family at the abbey, latterly the Talbots, then the National Trust have continued to care for the fabric of this beautiful Cotswold village.
