In the centre of Chipping Campden, a lovely small town in the Cotswolds stands the beautiful Market Hall. Surrounded by ancient houses made from the local honey-coloured stone, it’s easy to imagine the market-place alive with the bustle of traders from centuries past.
Built in 1627 by the town's wealthy benefactor, Sir Baptist Hicks, this landmark of the town was built to provide shelter for traders. Back then townsfolk would trade goods like cheese, butter and poultry. Walk along the ancient stone paved floor today and you'll get a sense of how important this building is to the town. The stone lovingly worn away by hundreds of years of bustling trading. You can almost hear the shouts and echoes from market traders long since gone.
In the 1940s it was almost sold to an American, but local people heroically raised the money to buy it first. They gave it to the National Trust so that people young and old can continue to cherish this delightful building.
