Lower Slaughter and the River Eye

The Story Behind the Image - Lower Slaughter and the River Eye

Pretty Cotswold stone buildings are reflected in the peaceful water of the River Eye in the picturesque Gloucestershire village of Lower Slaughter, near Bourton-on-the-Water.

In the background of this image is the village hall. Lower Slaughter is a popular Cotswold beauty spot and the place where our family take regular circular walks over the fields. It is also where we take visitors from North America to give them a glimpse of a pretty Cotswold village.

We first visited Lower Slaughter on a bicycle trip from Somerset to Oxford. As we wheeled into the village we discovered an art exhibition in the village hall so we stopped for a break and enjoyed works by local artists. Little did we know that years later we would live just a few miles away!
