Until the 5th of May, the Kurt Jackson exhibiton 'A one- mile walk' in Chipping Campden is a Great day out.

The Campden Gallery is a glorious gallery in which to host this superb Kurt Jackson exhibition, it's well worth a visit.
There are paintings and ceramics, a video about Kurt Jackson including him on a clifftop standing on a huge painting in bare feet sloshing about in paint.
The catalogue is great as a reminder of the paintings, and at £10 quite reasonably priced.
Here are some photos of the work:

It's well worth looking at the website, you can download the brochure, and look at past exhibitions.
Above all though, go and have a look at the current exhibition.
While there, it's worth having a walk along the Cotswold Way to Dover's Hill, north to the Dingle and round entering Chipping Campden from the east.
There are lots of sheep and lambs to be seen at this time of year:

And rather a superb secondary school dating back to 1927 with the 3 sheaves coat of arms above the
door:
The rural part of the  walk ends at the church, the back of which has the most amazing gateway:

And just beside this is Court Barn, a museum of craft and design:
 With some of Bernard Leach's pots on display
