  Seeing the beauty of the River Eye
by iandsmith

Lower Slaughter and Upper Slaughter are two of the loveliest villages in the Cotwolds and are just a few miles from Stow. One might expect their names to reflect the bloody history of Stow in the Civil War but actually the name 'Slaughter' derives form the Old English word 'Slough' or 'wet land'.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
