This evening, I am posting information on the scenic and popular village of Lower Slaughter in the English Cotswolds.

There has been a settlement here for about 1000 years. The name derives from the Old English for ‘muddy place’.

Character is due to the quaint limestone cottages lining the banks of the gentle flowing River Eye which is, effectively, the village’s main street.

Tucked away is a former water powered mill which is now a craft-centric visitor attraction. The water wheel still turns, albeit for cosmetic effect.

To complete the classic English ambience, the 13th century St. Mary’s Church with its classic spire stands close to the river and is normally open to the public.

Lower Slaughter is near to Bourton-on-the-Water and other popular Cotswold visitor sites.
