We walked from Lower Slaughter across the fields on the public footpath by the river to arrive near this lane with its pretty cottages in Upper Slaughter.

Following the lane above we reached this attractive little ford on the River Eye - the same river that runs through Lower Slaughter. Upper Slaughter is not quite as attractive as Lower Slaughter but is still worth a visit.

Across the ford to this side and along the lane behind the camera brought us to the church.

  St. Peter's Church, Upper Slaughter, Gloucestershire, England   St. Peter's Church, Upper Slaughter.

This church has Norman, 12th century, origins and some interesting Norman stonework has survived two Victorian 'restorations'. The present tower is 15th century. You may notice that the level of the churchyard is higher than the base of the church and the path to the door runs through a trough.
