Mark and I have a knack for stumbling upon events. Today we went to our most frequented walking spot; Lacock Abbey. When we got there we spotted signs for “Lacock at War” and could not miss just how many cars were in the car park (fortunately they opened the overspill car parks). Some people were dressed in 1940s gear and looked fabulous. We just followed the crowd and paid our £3 entry fee each…well worth it, it was a lovely surprise.

This year there is a Love Lacock photography competition (closing date 31 August) and I spent much time pondering which photo enter. Eventually I decided on this one of the Tree of Light and emailed it off…
…only to discover today it has now been taken down! Darn! Should have chosen a photo of the cloisters! Too late now.
