Gothick arch at Lacock Abbey

Location: Lacock Abbey

Keywords: Architecture

The arch is not true medieval Gothic. It is part of the Gothic revival (also known as Gothick) additions to Lacock Abbey as designed by Sanderson Miller in the eighteenth century.

The Gothic revival additions to Lacock Abbey are discussed in a project blog.
