Chipping Campden  

Chipping Camden is another of the Cotswold wool towns. The word "Chipping" means market. The word "Campden" is thought to be an old Saxon term meaning fields.

Chipping Campden is kept in pristine condition by the Campden Trust which was set up in 1929. The trust oversees the upkeep of traditional skills of stonecarving and repair that makes Chipping Campden such a "perfect" picture of golden-coloured stone.

Chipping Campden's High Street was described by the historian G.M. Trevelyan as "The most beautiful village street left on the island".

Chipping Campden's church, the Church of St James, is said by many to be one of the finest in the Cotswolds and was built in the 15th century. In common with many churches in the Cotswolds it was financed by wool merchants.
