I know that I am adding to the tourist appeal, but this little stream is clear, fast running and offers a beautiful foreground for what is a picture perfect town. The ducks seem to like it too!

This little stream moves slowly through the village of Bibury and is corssed by a few quaint little bridges. The stream runs right by Arlington Row and makes for some lovely photos. The Coln is very shallow and is teeming with birds and ducks.

Bibury is a fine little village. There's a combined shop/post office, a tea room, a handful of hotels/B&Bs, a church, the trout farm, and this river. If the weather is nice this is a lovely place for a picnic. But I wouldn't go out of...More

This river run through the Arlington row, quiet and calm clear water with lots of duck, spotted some fishes as well. It’s lovely sitting by the river and watch this sleepy old village.
