almshouses chipping campden

Gabled, mullioned, mullioned and hoodmoulded, these almshouses display the Cotswold vernacular at its best. They were built at a total cost of £1300 in 1612 by Sir Baptist Hicks, a wealthy benefactor to Chipping Campden and ancestor of the Earls of Gainsborough. The Hicks coat of arms can be seen on the front of the row, which forms the Roman numeral I, probably representing James I. Another interesting feature is the sunken cartwheel wash just opposite the almshouses.
