A walk through Lower Slaughter
Lower Slaughter is best discovered by foot. The whole village can be seen in 20 minutes if you just rush through, but for those who want to see more, take your time. Things I liked very much in Lower Slaughter include the mill, the manor house and the Cotswolds style houses located at basically every corner.
The mill is particularly interesting: Last used as a mill in 1958, it has now been turned into a little museum with a great old-fashioned souvenir shop. While the English seem to have mastered the art of selling great souvenirs instead of the usual bric-a-brac anyway, this little shop is even better. See for yourselves. The manor house (Lower Slaughter Manor) is said to be one of the finest country houses in England. I haven't been in but it looked enchanting from the outside as well. It is nowadays a luxury hotel with a good restaurant. Apart from these sights, there are "normal" houses everywhere. They may be normal, but for the first-time visitor they still look extraordinary. Look at my Cotswolds travelogue for some pictures.
