  Photograph of the Tudor Courtyard, Lacock Abbey, Wiltshire (Wilts), England   Lacock Abbey, Wiltshire.

Sir William Sharington built a stable courtyard, which included a bakehouse and brewery and this shows the Brewery part of that Tudor Courtyard. This part of the courtyard buildings is open to the public but the rest appears to be used as administrative buildings.

  View of the south side including Sharington's Tower, Lacock, Wiltshire (Wilts), England   Lacock Abbey, Wiltshire.

In the mid 19th century William Henry Fox Talbot remodelled the south elevation and added three new oriel windows shown in this view. In 1835 he made the earliest known surviving example of a photographic negative featuring the oriel window in the south gallery. This view of the south side also shows Sharington's Tower on the far corner.
