Photographer's Note

The name of the village of Lower Slaughter stems from the Old English name for a wet land 'slough' or 'slothre' (Old English for muddy place) upon which it lies. This quaint village sits beside the little Eye stream and is known for its unspoilt limestone cottages in the traditional Cotswold style.

As you can see on the far left, The Old Mill at the western end of the village with its restored water wheel and distinctive red brick tower, was built in the nineteenth century, and last used commercially in 1958. The Mill now has a tea and gift shop

Blessedly, it has remained unspoiled and free from the hordes of tour buses that descend like swarms on the neighbouring village of Bourton on the Water. Part of this tranquility has to do with the narrow lanes leading to the village, which help keep out large vehicles.

I was cycling and half walking all the time here for 1 day, happened to see this river reflecting the cottages nicely, hence i wait for the intermittent sun and shone the strongest and snapped a few shots.

Hope you like this picturesque.

P.S. Noel, i should have informed you earlier, but during this time i don think you would travel across London, but i see you next round in Dublin ^_^
