Adjacent to Chipping Campden, C.R Ashbee lived in Broad Campden for a while. He set up The Guild of Arts and Crafts in London in 1888 but moved the Guild to the village in 1902, where he found sympathetic locals and many patrons. Many Broad Campdens cottages are thatched, thus making it a charming, beautiful village. As well as the Church, there is a Quaker meeting house that dates back to the C17th. More recently, Broad Campden was featured in the Father Brown series.
