History of This Cottage 
The cottage has medieval origins, and the Mill was mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086. So there has been a building on the site for a very long time. The roof was raised to accommodate a second floor around 1500 and the stair tower and internal door have been dated to this time. The Mill and associated buildings were upgraded in the 1790s, and many of the cottage's features come from this period. In 1857 the Mill was converted to steam and again the buildings were improved. It is believed that the side kitchen extension was added about the same time.

Arlington - Bibury 
Bibury is situated in the Gloucestershire Cotswolds on the River Coln 9 miles from the market town of Burford. The village was once described by William Morris as 'the most beautiful village in the Cotswolds'. The village centre clusters around a square near St. Mary's, a Saxon church. Some of the Saxon remains inside the church are replicas as the originals are housed in the British Museum. One of the village's main tourist spots and overlooking a water meadow and the river is Arlington Row, a group of ancient cottages with steeply pitched roofs dating back to the 16th Century. Henry Ford thought Arlington Row was an icon of England. On a trip to the Cotswolds he tried to buy the entire row of houses to ship back to Michigan so that he could include them in Greenfield Village. Bibury has provided the backdrop for blockbuster films including Stardust and Bridget Jones's Diary.
