The Cotswolds Pt. 11 - Chipping Camden

Chipping Campden is one of the loveliest small towns(it's not a village) in the Cotswolds and a gilded masterpiece of limestone and craftmanship.The main street curves in a shallow arc lined with a succession of ancient houses each grafted to the next but each with it's own distinctive embellishments.
As the name suggests (Chipping means market) and Chipping Campden was one of the most important of the medieval wool towns and famous throughout Europe. This legacy of fame and prosperity is everything that gives the town it's character.
Chipping Campden's church at the north end of the town, is perhaps, the finest 'wool' church in the Cotswolds, with a magnificent 120ft (36 metre) tower and a very spacious interior. The church is famed for having one of the oldest altar tapestries (pre-reformation) in England.

Good to hear from you Barbara. I have been crazy busy - just in time for Thanksgiving.

Thank you for the kind Thanksgiving greetings. Love to you and yours, even though you probably don't celebrate this all American holiday.

Hi Barbara,

What a lovely place. I adore the Cotswolds, although I have only visited the area once and saw a small part. One day I hope to go there again.

Wonderful pictures, Barbara. I've actually been there and the market building is fascinating. We were actually staying in Broadway and drove over there to do some sightseeing. That whole area is just beautiful!

The market hall has such graceful arches. I would love to visit England one day - your stories and photos are inspiring.

I'm sure I would love Chipping Camden for the wool market connection alone. Is there a knitting museum?

Much love and many blessings
Love Jeanne ^j^

Those old buildings have so much character. If they could speak, what stories we would hear! It makes me want to visit today!

Wow, more lovely pictures :) I like the ones of the church; I have an art history final coming up soon so all I've been looking at lately are pictures of churches...
