Upper and Lower Slaughter - the slightly macabre name comes from the Old English for 'muddy place' - are linked by the tiny River Eye, a tributary to the River Windrush.
A wander alongside the stream in Lower Slaughter seems like a privilege - people actually live here! Lower Slaughter Mill & café is well worth a visit - a mill was recorded her in the Doomsday Book of 1086.
Upper Slaughter is equally attractive - and one of only 14 'doubly sainted' villages in England, villages that lost no men during either World War I or II.
There is limited parking in the Slaughters, but they are easily reached on foot via a lovely walk from Bourton-on-the-Water. You can enjoy a circular walk from Lower Slaughter to Upper Slaughter or a walk from Bourton-on-the-Water to Lower Slaughter
