Chipping Campden was a settlement by the 7th century and, almost certainly, long before that. The Saxon ‘campa’ ‘denu’ is an accurate description as the meaning is literally ‘a valley with cultivated fields ringed by unfenced hill pastures’. The word ‘Chipping’ meaning ‘market’, was not added until much later when the town had a market. Little is known about Campden before the Norman Conquest and the Domesday Book recorded a population of about 300. Campden is a very early example of town planning. The Lord of the Manor, Hugh de Gondeville was granted a market charter by King Henry II in 1185 and set out the plan of the town. The main street followed level ground by the River Cam, a curve that helps to make the High Street so attractive. He laid out regular plots of land called burgages to be occupied for a fee by craftsmen, traders and others providing services to the community. An aerial view of the town today clearly shows evidence of these burgage plots.
The Cotswolds became very prosperous in the 14th and 15th centuries and Campden, in particular, thrived. The wool from the long-backed Cotswold Lion sheep was prized across Europe. William Grevel, the son of a local man, became one of Campden’s (and, by repute, one of England’s) most successful wool merchants. In about 1380 he built a new house in the High Street (Grevel House) that still stands today. The Woolstaplers Hall on the other side of the High Street was built in the 14th century by Robert Calf and illustrates how Campden had become an important collecting point for fleece, later sold to Flemish and Italian clothiers.
Agriculture was in decline nationally during the 18th and 19th centuries and Campden suffered accordingly. Wool staple could not be sold abroad and there was insufficient water in the valley to support a wool cloth industry. A silk mill was established in 1790, just off Sheep Street, but this was given up by 1842. In 1836, Campden was described as a “dull, clean, disused market town”. The railway came by in 1840 and there was an out of town station but the town declined and, 50 years on, the population was depleted and no less than one in ten cottages stood empty. Providentially, however, Campden was ideal for the relocation from London of Ashbee’s Guild of Handicraft in 1902. This influx revitalised the town’s craftsmanship and community as well as commercial life. The Guild duly rescued, restored in character and gave new life to many neglected old properties and this began many decades of extraordinary care and conservation of Campden’s built heritage.
