History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
by Barbara Ballard
The workers supplied cloth for fulling at 17th century Arlington Mill, which served, at one time, as a corn mill. The Mill now houses a folk and agricultural museum with one room dedicated to William Morris.
The Mill, with its working water wheel, looks down on trout swimming lazily in crystal clear spring water. The Bibury Trout Farm, founded in 1902, spawns 10 million Rainbow trout each year. The visitor can buy them smoked or fresh or fish for their own. A park and gardens enhance the beauty of the spot. Bibury, on the other side of the river, is grouped around St. Mary's Church. The Saxon part of the church dates from the 8th century.
It was a popular place when the Bibury Races were held in King Charles day. Now its stone environs boast top class rooms and a restaurant. The Bibury Court Hotel, situated in 8 acres of grounds, dates from Tudor times, the main part built in1633, while the Catherine Wheel Inn, the local pub, is a 15th century building.
