Welcome to Scuttlebrook Wake

Scuttlebrook Wake is an annual celebration held in Chipping Campden on the first Saturday after Whitsun. Wakes have been held in Campden from at least the 12th century but the current one has its origins in the late 19th century and is named named after the Cattle brook which flowed through the Leasebourne end of the High Street.
