Bibury, England

Postmarked Bath, dated 14 october 1998

Arlington Row, Bibury
The 17th century cottages known as Arlington Row are now in the care of the National Trust.  They face on to Rack Isle, now a swampy bird sanctuary, but one the place where the weavers from the cottages dried their cloth.

The row, with steeply pitched roofs and honey coloured stone, was originally built in 1380 as a wool store and then later converted into weavers' cottages.  William Morris described the village as "the most beautiful in England".
