Arlington Row, Bibury

Arlington Row in Bibury is apparently one of the most photographed streets in the Cotswolds. The Row is a set of cottages looked after by the National Trust that were built in 1380 as a wool store and then converted into weaver’s cottages in the 17th century.


It was certainly fairly busy when we visited, on a Monday afternoon in July, but not enough that you couldn’t take a few unspoiled photographs. It also apparently appears on the inside cover of all newly issued UK passports, since 2010.


The cloth produced at Arlington Row would have been taken to Arlington Mill (now a private residence) and the mill stream flows below the cottages and into the River Coln.



It’s a pleasant stopping off point if you’re in the area and you can find some more of my photos here.
