I was inspired to paint Arlington Row thanks to its true beauty and the natural materials it’s built of.
It is limestone with slate tiles on the roof. It was first used as a wool store. Then turned into weavers’ cottages in the 17th century. Once washed the wool was hung to dry at nearby “Rock Isle”. It is a water meadow today. The wool then went on to Arlington Mill. It is in private ownership today. These cottages are in the Cotswolds AONB. They are nestled in the picturesque village of Bibury. William Morris (a famous artist) called Bibury “the most beautiful village in England”. Today the National Trustowns and rents it. They let self catering in No 9 and tearooms.
Have you been to Arlington Row or know of someone that has? Do you or they have memories of these impressive weaver’s cottages? Why not brighten your home or theirs? Why not make their day with this stunning card when they have a special occasion coming up?
