A Visit to Bibury

Weavers cottages, Arlington Row, Bibury.In response to the emails and requests that I have had from many of you I thought I would put together a little bit more information about Bibury with some of the familiar sight around the village. I hope you all enjoy these.

Open any English passport and you will find an image of Bibury thought by William Morris the renowned textile designer and poet to be the most beautiful village in England.

Bibury is probably most known for the image of the weavers cottages at Arlington Row pictured in our passports and on the All English Things facebook page which so many of you have remarked how beautiful it is.

Here are some more images taken around the village which capture the quaintness of this beautiful little place.

I hope you like them
