Upper and Lower Slaughter share a fascinating name, which derives from 'miry place'. The link is the tiny River Eye, tributary to the nearby river Windrush. Lower Slaughter is just of the Fosse Way and very conservation-minded, a wander alongside the stream seems like a privilege. People actually live here! Upper Slaughter is equally attractive - a 'sainted village' meaning that it lost nobody in the First World War.

There is limited parking in the Slaughters, but they are easily reached on foot via a nice walk from Bourton-on-the-Water.
