Lacock Village and Abbey

You need to log in as a member of Walkingworld to access the details for this walk and have an active subscription. Please join, or log in above if you are already a member.

The village of Lacock is a beautiful village with many fine old stone cottages and buildings. To the east is the River Avon and some fine water meadows. In some years these meadows are flooded three or four times. Taking this walk gives views of the meadows and the abbey.

The National Trust has helped to preserve the abbey buildings and some of the fine houses in the area. The walk itself is mainly on lanes and footpaths. The first stretch of road is not a main one but it does have quite a lot of traffic, but after crossing the river and after the left turn the lanes are very quiet.

If the weather is wet you may wish to avoid the field crossing at Waymark 3 and follow the road route to 4, as described for wheelchairs. All the walk otherwise is on paved paths or roads or footpaths.

Lovely walk, but the traffic leaving Lacock was quite busy and made negotiating the narrow bridges with the buggy a bit hairy at times! However, as described in information pack, no sooner had we left the main road the traffic ceased and it gave us a nice quiet stroll through the countryside.
