About the Peeler’s Trust

Come and locate your business in what is now the main thriving hub in the middle of the High Street in Chipping Campden; a charming and picturesque market town in the North Cotswolds.

This is The Old Police Station, a Grade 2 Listed four floored building with its own Magistrate’s Courtroom and three cells below. The running of the building is undertaken by The Campden and District Peelers Trust, a registered charity set up in 2002 to renovate the property and convert it into a Community Centre with a mixture of community and commercial long term-tenants.

There is also a very busy and active office housing the Clerk to the Town Council
