I Marched Straight to Cambden, by Jill Wilson, subtitled 'The Story of Chipping Campden during the English Civil Wars 1642-1651'
Published by the Campden & District History & Archaeological Society in 2007, 30 pages. A5 size booklet (N3562)
This booklet is a fascinating history of the Gloucestershire village of Chipping Campden during the English Civil War. The village was very close to two key routes at the time, the first between the parliamentary strongholds of Gloucester and Warwick, and the second linking the Royalist centres at Worcester and Oxford, and it played an important role in the conflict.
This booklet is full with fascinating facts about the military campaigns, planning, army commanders, and much more, and is a must read for anyone interested in the local history of Gloucestershire, as well as people with a more particular interest in the history of the English Civil War
Condition of the booklet is excellent. The cover is clean and tidy, with only very minor nibbling along the edges, the staple spine is intact, and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound.
