Trip Planner Europe  /  UK  /  England  /  Cotswolds  /  Upper Slaughter
Upper Slaughter is a village in the English county of Gloucestershire located in the Cotswold district located 4mi south west of the town of Stow-on-the-Wold. Nearby places include Lower Slaughter, Bourton-on-the-Water and Daylesford.The village is built on both banks of the River Eye. The Anglican parish church is dedicated to St. Peter.Upper Slaughter was identified by author Arthur Mee as one of 32 Thankful Villages, although more recent work suggests a total of 52. This term referred to the small number of villages in England and Wales which had lost no men in World War I, and was popularised by Mee in the 1930s. In Enchanted Land (1936), the introductory volume to "The King's England" series of guides, he wrote "that a Thankful Village was one which had lost no men in the Great War because all those who left to serve came home again." Although the village was subject to an air raid, it also lost no men in World War II, an honour held by only 14 villages, collectively known as the Doubly Thankful Villages.The parliamentary constituency is represented by Geoffrey Clifton-Brown MP.The largest business in the village is the Lords of the Manor Hotel.
