Bibury : The Most photographed Village in the Cotswolds

The Cotswold Village of Bibury has been rated one of the most "Instagrammable" Villages in the UK. It is well known for its 17th. Century Weavers Cottages, the River Coln, the Old Mill, and Trout Farm. Arlington row was converted from a wool store to house workers in the wool degreasing (fulling) Mill built at that time. Emperor Hirohito visited the village in 1921. William Morris described Bibury in the 1870's as the "the most beautiful village in England". I agree with William Morris, and I am sure you will too when you visit.

The most beautiful Village in England

Arlington Row, situated in the Cotswold village of Bibury, was converted from a 14thC. Wool store,  into a row of 17thC weavers cottages for workers who worked at the "new" degreasing mill. The Cottages, now in an Architectural Conservation Area, are owned by the National Trust. The Cottages rented out today, have been used as a backdrop in many films such as Stardust and Bridget Jones Diary. The fast flowing river Coln, where Trout can be seen, runs through the middle of the village adding to the picturesque Cotswold village scene.  William Morris described the Bibury as "the most beautiful village" in England in 1870.
