Lower Slaughter is just off the Fosse Way and very conservation-minded - a wander alongside the stream seems like a privilege. People actually live here!

Shilton is a picturesque village on the edge of the Cotswolds. The centre of Shilton can only be approached by going down a hill as the village lies within a small basin through which runs the Shill Brook creating a ford where one of the roads crosses it. Shilton has one pub, a church and a chapel and the normal things to be found in a cotswolds village.
A beautiful old Cotswold town, its High Street sloping from the high Wolds, where you have beautiful views over the open countryside, down to the willow fringed River Windrush in the pretty Windrush valley. A fine three arched medieval bridge crosses the river at the foot of the hill.
