England - Cotswolds, Lower Slaughter

England - Cotswolds, Lower Slaughter
Lower Slaughter is one of the most authentic and beautiful Cotswold villages with its limestone cottages in the traditional style (PiP 1 and 2). During our visit not overcrowded with tourists (like other nearby villages like Bourton-on-the Water or Broadway) and an ideal peaceful place for a walk around the splendid Saint Mary’s Church and along the River Eye, a stream peacefully running through the village crossed by two narrow footbridges.

The name of the village of Lower (and Upper) Slaughter derives from the old English name for a wet land 'slough' or 'slothre' (= muddy place) upon which it lies.

“The Old Mill” is the main attraction in the quaint village. Already in the year of 1086 a mill is recorded on this site; in the 14th century it had begun to be known as “Slaughter Mill”. The present mill was built in the 19th century. Nowadays it offers a museum, craft shop and tea-room with a wonderful terrace along the River Eye (PiP 3 and 4).

I've always found it quite funny that some of the most beautiful places in England have such unfortunate names :-))

Anyway, name notwithstanding, this is a really delightful shot Jaap...........beautiful houses, a lovely river and bridge and all in gorgeous sunshine. Very well composed and taken. The images in the PiPs are also superb and show some great context. First Class work!

Thanks for the memories. My Mum had a set of place mats from here from a trip in the 80s. She had evidently missed learning the reason for the name so I had assumed it was named for a battle.
