For many visitors, Chipping Campden is the quintessential Cotswold town. It has a variety of building styles that have survived from all ages. Chipping Campden was one of the Cotswold's main wool markets and one of the main buildings in the town is the Market Hall which looks like an Italian Renaissance Loggia but with Cotswold gables.

Chipping Campden has important links with the Arts and Crafts movement. C.R. Ashbee set up his Guild of Handicrafts here in 1902. His workshop in the old silk mill in Sheep Street is now a small museum.

The photograph shows a beautiful example of the honey-coloured Cotswold stone thatched cottages for which the region is famous.
