Scuttlebrook Wake - Chipping Campden

2nd June Scuttlebrook Wake

The Scuttlebrook Wake always follows on the next day after the Robert Dover's Olimpick Games.

There is a procession of the Scuttlebrook May Queen from Littleworth to the square, pulled on her cart by the Chipping Campden Morris Men, accompanied by her four attendants and a page boy.

She is followed by decorated floats and a fancy dress parade and all shops and houses along the route are encouraged to enter a window competition.

THE LOCAL HISTORY AND ARCHIVE ROOM

You may have seen my colleagues or me, hurrying down the High Street clutching files or papers, heard us call 'just off to the archives': or noticed us scurrying into the Old Police Station at all hours. Perhaps you have wondered what we do there?

The CADHAS local history and archive room is in the Old Police Station on the first floor. It is run by Olivia Amphlett, CADHAS archivist and her main assistants, Monica Bedding, Judith Ellis, Jennifer Bruce and Carol Jackson with a team of fourteen volunteers. The archive room was first set up in 2003 and since that time has been open regularly on Monday afternoons, Wednesdays am & pm, Thursday and Saturday mornings for members of the public, Campden locals, CADHAS members or visitors to the town to visit and consult CADHAS records.

Good things happen on the streets of Chipping Campden

(From the letters section of the Chipping Campden Bulletin. Reproduced with kind permission of Jeremy Green)

It's comforting to know that good things happen on the streets of Campden! Totally unaware, I dropped my purse outside the library which was thankfully found by a couple waiting for the bus. The tourist information office being closed, they handed it to a lady in the town who kindly took the trouble to phone my home and mobile numbers.
