Upper & Lower Slaughter

Driving Time:

Approximately 33 minutes

Just over a mile from Bourton-on-the-Water are the twin villages of Upper and Lower Slaughter. The name comes from old English 'Slohtre', which has nothing to do with killing things and means, simply, 'Muddy place'. Today's villages are far from muddy places. They are the epitome of idyllic, civilised Cotswold charm.
