The sleepy town of Chipping Norton is somewhat spoiled with lots of traffic but has plenty of quiet areas to wander and few crowds. You will find handsome Georgian buildings, stone cottages, and old inns surrounding the market square, and a row of beautiful 17th century almshouses on Church Street. Further on is the secluded Church of St. Mary’s, a classic example of Cotswold wool churches. The town’s most enduring landmark is the Bliss Mill on the outskirts of town. This monument to the industrial architecture of the 19th century is more like a stately home than a factory and is topped by a Tuscan style domed tower.
