The High Street, Chipping Campden
The High Street, Chipping Campden


Chipping Campden, with its perfectly preserved curving High Street, is perhaps the finest of all Cotswold towns, set in a bowl of hills near the escarpment at Dover's Hill.

Many of its most interesting buildings date from the reign of King James I, when Sir Baptist Hicks built the Almshouses and Campden Manor, of which only the gateway lodges and two ornate pavilions survive.

The magnificent wool church has few equals in the County.
