BIBURY

Bibury, or Becheberie as it was known in Saxon times, is built on both banks of the River Coln which rises a few miles away and which flows into the  Thames. The village is centred 6 ¹⁄₂ miles northeast of Cirencester.

William Morris once described Bibury as the "most beautiful village in England". Bibury is famous for the 14thC Arlington row wool store which was converted into weavers cottages in the 17thC.

 Arlington Mill was once the home to Rosemary Verey. The Saxon Church of St. Mary was built in AD721-43.

Customer reviews

We visited the Cotswolds recently with Mark. We saw some of the most fascinating villages, and scenery that I have ever seen.
