Ah, Lacock Abbey...wonderful place.
Dare I mention, a few pieces of our furniture are in there :-)
A VERY OLD ABBEY DOOR AND LOCK
This is an inner door within Lacock Abbey, in Wiltshire.

The abbey was founded in 1232 by Ela, Countess of Salisbury in memory of her husband William Longespee. On the very same day she also rode 15 miles on horseback to found a monastery at Hinton Charterhouse for Carthusian monks.

Ela later became Lacock's first Abbess and spent her last days at the abbey.

For #joinindaily set by +Johnny Wills - today's theme 'Locks & Padlocks'.

Form follows Function
...was definitely alive and kicking in the late 16th century, when this beautiful Elizabethan great hall was built at Fawsley, Northants. Thankfully it was rescued from dereliction, over several decades starting in the 1970's, by a furniture maker and antiques dealer, funnily enough!
