Chipping Campden Market Hall

Posted by
Nigel (Avening, United Kingdom) on 30 April 2012 in Architecture and Portfolio.

This is what I call a historic building - if you ever get the chance to go there then take it. This is what Wikipedia has to say about the town....
A rich wool trading centre in the Middle Ages, Chipping Campden enjoyed the patronage of wealthy wool merchants . Today it is a popular Cotswold tourist destination with old inns, hotels, specialist shops and restaurants. The High Street is lined with honey-coloured limestone buildings, built from the mellow locally quarried oolitic limestone known as Cotswold stone, and boasts a wealth of fine vernacular architecture. At its centre stands the Market Hall with its splendid arches, built in 1627.

This is magnificent - the story as well the image here. I think it is simply amazing to read and reflect upon the age of these structures...and perhaps even more so to reflect upon the history and stories behind them. Thank yuo for this one, sir!
