I have been doing some sleuthing, further to posting the monochrome image of Arlington Row, Bibury, taken by my late father in the early ’50s ( I think) https://suejudd.com/2018/08/04/six-word-saturday-in-another-quieter-world-circa-1950/
I have been trying to establish when the Trust acquired Arlington Row, to no avail. In the end, I contacted the Trust, and a very helpful man found the information and called me back. The date was earlier than I had expected…May 1949.
So….I am left wondering whether that image was taken pre- or post-acquisition. I lean towards post, because it is highly likely if there had been any information in the news, that would have alerted my father to the existence of this place…..he was a great one for finding out about interesting places. It’s where I get it from…
In in the end, I shall never know…..
