      Disadvantages

      Want to see what is classed as "the perfect High Street"? Then Chipping Campden is the place to visit as it has been given this title. Once there you will see why! It has beautiful stone houses that all date back to between the 14th and 18th century. They are seeped in history. In the middle is the Market Hall. This was originally built like a lot of towns around here in the Cotswolds to provide shelter for the locals when selling their produce. The houses here are reported to be the most photographed in the country. The locals really play on this too and the show of flowers in the summertime is magnificent. Everywhere you go the scent of these flowers seem to follow. The Church is a landmark to look out for for miles around. Like a lot of cotswold Churches it was built in the 15th century and is a perpendicular wool church. If you have never seen Almshouses you must see the ones near the church. They were built for £1000, which was a lot in those days for to house 6 men and 6 woman all had to be poor! Wool did dominate the cotswolds and chipping Campden is no exception. A wool merchant built the Woolstaplers Hall for the merchants of london and Italy to come and buy cotswold fleeces. The area is surrounded by a lot of national trust properties so if you are really into gardens and flowers and historic houses you will be in your element in this area. Before you leave dont forget to have a drink in one of the local pubs. The Lygon Arms even has a skittle alley which is fun if there is a group of you. The food is also very reasonable and good there. The other pub is the volunteer Inn. This is a typical cotswold pub, you know the ones with big log fires, beer gardens, good bar meals and friendly locals who will willingly tell you all the local folk lore.
