Chipping Campden Market Hall appeal

Project
The Market Hall in Chipping Campden

Built in 1627 by the town's benefactor, the Market Hall was used by the towns' people to trade goods. In the 1940s local people heroically raised the money to purchase the Market Hall and generously gave it to the National Trust to care for the buildings future.

Restoration work

From the 1st October, work will start on repairs to the corner of the Market Hall, accidentally damaged in 2017 by a passing vehicle. All costs associated with these repairs will be covered by the driver's insurance with the National Trust covering the £1,000 claim excess. This will see the corner impacted repaired with new pieces of stone.

We are keen to take advantage of the opportunity of having skilled local craftsmen on site, whilst there is road protection in place, to also complete essential maintenance and restoration works to keep the Market Hall in good condition. This work, not associated with the damage, includes stone repairs to eroded areas, timber repairs and attention to the roof which has deteriorated in places.

We need your help

The cost for the additional work is just over £18,000. The National Trust has already raised £5,000 for this work and some local community groups are also kindly offering their help to raise the remaining £13,000 needed to complete the full list of work. We urgently need your help to raise this money.
