Arlington Row

These cottages in the Cotswold village of Bibury, Gloucestershire were built in 1380, originally as a monastic wool store but converted into weavers cottages in the 17th century. The cloth produced there was then passed to the nearby Arlington Mill for final finishing.

 

Arlington Row is probably one of the most visited and photographed Cotswold locations and it was quite a wait before I could take this photograph. The cottages are in the care of the National Trust who actually rent one of them out for holidaymakers.

 

Since 2010, an image of Arlington Row cottages has appeared on the inside cover of all newly-issued UK passports.
