Upper Slaughter is known as a Thankful Village, as it was one of the very few villages in England to have no resident die in World War 1 or 2. The villages main building is The Lord of The Manor Hotel, built in Elizabethan times with parts dating back to 15th century. Again, another fabulous hotel to stay for a few days. The village is split by the stream. A foot bridge and a Ford are an attraction. Most people like to drive through the Ford, but it is sometimes deeper than it looks.
Both Slaughter villages lie on the tiny stream called The Eye. The name Slaughter is an old English name for wet or muddy land, known as Slothre.
