Chipping Campden

British Landscapes is a journey through the British countryside and heritage through the photography of David J. Osborn. Take Chipping Campden, for instance, a town near the country seat of the Flea's second-cousin once-removed.

Chipping Campden in the Cotswold's established itself as a busy wooltraders town in the 14th century. Wool from Cotswold Sheep, grazed on the surrounding farmland, was graded, sold and transported to London. The High Street contains many Cotswold stone buildings constructed between the 14th and 17th centuries and is now designated as a conservation area.
