Arlington Row, Bibury
The most popular tourist spot is Arlington Row, a group of ancient cottages with steeply pitched roofs (due to the weight of the slate). These 17th century cottages were converted from an original hall (used to store wool) into weavers' homes. Just opposite is a water meadow called Rack Isle, a protected wildfowl breeding ground. Awkward Hill rises behind Arlington Row. It, too, is covered with cottages in warm Cotswold stone.
