Lower / Upper Slaughter

Lower Slaughter is almost too perfect, and the slough, or marsh, from which the village derives its name has now been tidied up, so that the River Eye now flows between grassy banks and colourful cottage gardens beneath a series of simple stone bridges. A delightful lane follows the Eye upstream to Upper Slaughter. The church has many fine Norman details, but the most curious feature is a large, mock-medieval tomb of the Reverend F. E. Witts (died 1854), whose Diary of a Cotswold Parson was discovered and published some years ago.
