Upper Slaughter

The lovely hamlet of Upper Slaughter is located about one mile from its sister village, Lower Slaughter. The word 'Slaughter' comes from the old English word slohtre meaning marshy place. The two villages are connected by the River Eye. The village was once dominated by a Norman Castle of which little remains.

Upper Slaughter
The Parish Church of St. Peter in Upper Slaughter has elements dating from Saxon times but is by and large a Norman era church (Norman elements date from the 12th century AD).

Upper Slaughter
Upper Slaughter is located between the B4068 and the A429 just north of Bourton-on-the-Water. Visitors to Upper Slaughter may also want to visit Lower Slaughter, nearby Bourton-on-the-Water, or Burford.
