Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

My husband and I have just spent a few days very enjoyable days in Oxford with Viviane and her husband Chris. We had a great time; good company, good weather and beautiful places to explore.

We first visited a small village in the Cotswolds called Bibury. It just could not have been prettier, with its village green, small running stream and old houses, bursting with character.

My photograph shows Arlington Row. The cottages were built in 1380 as a monastic wool store. This was converted into a row of cottages for weavers in the seventeenth century. The cloth produced there was sent to Arlington Mill.

Arlington Row is a popular visitor attraction, probably one of the most photographed Cotswold scenes, and was preserved by the Royal College of Arts. It has been used as a film and television location, most notably for the films Stardust and Bridget Jones's Diary.

Bibury was once described by William Morris (1834-96) as “the most beautiful village in England”. A picture of Bibury is seen on the inside cover of all United Kingdom passports, making it the most depicted village in the world.

I will show close-ups of the cottages at a later date.

Have a great Sunday, Bev :-)
