Upper & Lower Slaughter

Lower Slaughter is a village in the Cotswold district of Gloucestershire, England, 4 miles south west of Stow-on-the-Wold. The village is built on both banks of the River Eye, a slow-moving stream crossed by two footbridges, which also flows through Upper Slaughter. The name Slaughter stems from the old English name for wet land, which means muddy place. Both villages sits by the Eye stream and are known for their unspoilt limestone cottages in the traditional Cotswold style.
