Chipping Campden in the Cotswolds
Chipping Campden is a small market town within the Cotswold district of Gloucestershire, England. Chipping Campden is most noted for its long and wide High Street, dating from the 14th century to the 17th century.
“Chipping” is from Old English cēping, “a market, a market-place”; the same element is found in other towns such as Chipping Norton and Chipping Sodbury.
