This very old building was just behind the cottage where we stayed, It had lots of visitors, This is the mill where Baptiste Hicks brought 100 crafts-men from London to work and ply their crafts and trade, lots of crafts are still being done in this place, and there is a shop selling all sorts of lovely works.

Occasionally in weekend formats such as cocktail parties, there's a modest debate distinguishing between the properties of Art and Craft. Is there such a thing as bad art or brilliant craft? Do the fruits of the one tend to be envisioned as subtle genteel touches by means of sensitive fingertips and the other calloused poundings driven by toughened sinews? Is... More

Go back in time and visit this traditional workshop that has not changed in 150 years. See all the various tools, the filing systems hanging from the ceiling and the various mmebers of family business working. Order something special or see the shop next door.

The silversmith Harts is a remarkable survival, from the time of Ashbee and others, and when visiting do consider giving them a commission. The Gallery has a good range of affordable creations, and the Campden Coffee shop wears its heart on its sleeve, everything well-made, full of honesty, taste and flavour, with love and delight.

A lot of effort and love appears to have gone in to preparing this place for the local community and travellers to visit. Many different exhibtions and a well presented collage on the history of Chipping Campden.

The gallery contains a wide variety of work - painting, collage, pottery, jewellery, glass, furniture and many other media - ranging from the quirky to the sublime. The silversmithing workshop upstairs is fascinating. The coffee shop is comfortable and shabby chic in style, with a good choice of teas and coffees, and some lovely cakes/biscuits, all at reasonable prices. Well... More

Sheep Street where the Old Silk Mill is located is well worth a visit if you are visiting the most delightful town of Chipping Campden, probably the prettiest village in the Cotswolds. Within the mill is the wonderful gallery with works of more than twenty artists on display , from watercolours to oils to pottery to excellent and eye-catching sculptures... More

A time warp! Truly amazing trip back in time and a small selection of items to purchase. The skills have been passed down through the generations. Truly a family business and top quality craftsmanship.

The Old Silk Mill is worth taking some time to visit. Local artists display their work and many also work on site. Harts Silversmiths is wonderful. Our children love seeing sheets of silver, half made items and beautifully finished items. Not only does it look and feel like you're stepping back in time but you will be welcomed by the... More
