Fox Talbot Museum at Lacock Abbey, the seeming incongruity of the Photography Museum in the outbuildings of an ancient stately home is explained by the fact that a later Talbot, William Henry Fox Talbot (1800-77), a pioneering photographer, took one of the very first photographs ever (of a window in the Abbey you can see it in the museum) and invented the modern photographic negative. The museum offers a fascinating insight into the history of photography.
