Chipping Campden

Chipping Campden

The long and flowing main street gives the town its shape and style. Frequently described as the ‘jewel in the crown’ of the Cotswold towns, Chipping Campden is also one of the best preserved and most historically important.

The church of St James is one of the Cotswolds’ finest wool churches with merchants brasses galore. Alongside are the gates of Campden House, much damaged in the Civil War.

With the arrival of the Guild of Handicraft in the early 20th century, and since the establishment of the Campden Trust in 1929, Chipping Campden has been thoroughly preserved and still presents something of the character of a Cotswold market town before the age of the motor car. The town is a mecca for arts and crafts in which it boasts a long tradition. On nearby Dover’s Hill, Captain Robert Dover founded the Cotswold Olimpicks in the 17th century, and they are still celebrated every year.
