Photographer's Note

Arlington Row is one of the best illustrations of weavers cottages. Built in the 17th century the cottages were occupied by weavers that produced fabric from the wool of the local sheep. The looms were set up in the attics.

The cottages are built of odd-shaped stones from local limestone quarries. The windows are few - largely because glass was expensive in the 1600's and windows were taxed. The interior of the cottages are therefore quite dark.
