Bibury an exotic, wonderful, typical Cotswold village which is extremely close
to “The Cotswold capital” Cirencester and was once described by William Morris (1834-96) as "the most beautiful village in England"


The main attraction within Bibury is the picturesque Arlington Row cottages, they were built in 1380 as a monastic wool store. This was converted into a row of weavers' cottages in the 17th century. Henry Ford believed the Arlington row to be a significant icon of England that he tried to buy the entire row of houses to ship back to Michigan so that he could include them in Greenfield Village, his history theme park.

Saxon Church, the Church of St Mary. The north Chancel wall of the Church is home to a stained glass window which was designed in 1927 by Karl Parsons and was featured in the 1992 Christmas stamp set issued by the Royal Mail.
Reviews of the church has rated the Church of Mary within Bibury is within the top 20 of England. The setting is exquisite: especially the churchyard with its weavers tombs. The Church itself is like a textbook of architecture which represents the scenic image of Bibury.
