Chipping Campden is one of the most exquisite small towns in the Cotswolds. Much of the town has been designated a conservation area to preserve it for centuries to come. It has become known for its attractive and unusual main street, that is long and broad, curving in a gentle arc and flanked on either side by an almost unbroken single terrace with many different architectural styles. It was one of the most important of the medieval wool towns and famous throughout Europe. The church, that will be seen at the start of the walk, has a magnificent 120-foot tower and is famed for having one of the oldest altar tapestries in England. Shortly after the church, the almshouses and wagon-wheel wash can be seen, that dates back to the 19th Century and was used by carts to clean off their wheels before entering the town.

The walk heads across the gentle rolling hills of the North Cotswolds and goes on to visit the smaller, but equally delightful villages of Broad Campden, Paxford and Ebrington, with attractive stone cottages at the side of its sunken roads. The Churchill Arms in Paxford or The Ebrington Arms Inn offer good food along the route of the walk, or just a stop for a drink. Or you may prefer to finish the walk at one of Chipping Camden's many pubs or tea shops.
