    Yeah, I thought it was Harry Potty!

    Actually, Mark Osterman teaches there in the summer under the auspices of GEH and the Talbot curators to reconstruct many of the old methods that Talbot used right there in the Abbey.

    Can one petition the NT for recognition of the photographic history aspect of the location?

    Well I know its only related to OP's final sentence - but I am currently working in the drydock where the USS Missouri was built and most of the people that work here don't even know that - a bit annoying to say the least.

    My flickr and (gasp!) dpug photos - take a look if you like.

    Even if you told them, it would probably have no significance for them.

    Lacock Abbey is hardly the epicentre of Talbot's work. The museum in the village is much more interesting from that aspect.
    And the village itself is very photogenic.
    Since the OP mentions his visit was a few years ago, maybe it's time for a reprise.

    I would say Lacock Abbey was very much the epicentre of Talbot's work. There is an area within the Abbey dedicated to Talbot and his early work, I was just dissapointed that his darkroom area was not pointed out in preference to Harry Potter.

    Did they build that one before or after the USS Enterprise?
