Boxer. Laycock. Wilts. ENG

Laycock is a village in Wiltshire entirely owned by the National Trust, a charity which owns property & land to protect it as heritage. The village, based around the land of the 13C Laycock Abbey, used to belong to the Fox Talbot family. It was in 1835 that William Fox Talbot took the first negative photograph, of one of the Abbey's mullioned windows, which initiated the era of endlessly reproduceable photographic images, as opposed to the single image Daguerreotype.
