Thatched Cottages Chipping Campden,Gloucestershire.
Chipping Campden is the quintessential Cotswold town and was one of the most important of the medieval wool towns, and famous throughout Europe.
Campden was already established in the 7th century and derives its name from the Saxon “Campa-denu” or “Campadene”, meaning a valley with fields or enclosures of cultivated land, and Chipping" means market or market place from the old English “Ceping”.
In 1970 the High Street and much of the rest of the town was officially designated a conservation area to preserve the ancient town for centuries to come.
