The Old Mill at River Eye

Like many Cotswold towns, Lower Slaughter is characterized by an attractive array of limestone structures, grouped around a green on the north bank of the River Eye. It should be noted that Lower Slaughter, famed for an Old Mill that serves the most delectable vanilla, butter crunch, ground coffee, wild strawberry, garden mint chocolate, Jamaican rum and raisin, lemon meringue, brown bread, and pistachio ice cream, has nothing to do with carnage, despite its horrific name. The name "Slaughter" derives from the Old English slohtre, which means a muddy place. If you clicked on the hyperlink above and are wondering why the website treats you to a lovely jazz melody, please understand that the Old Mill's owner, Gerald Harris, who can be seen on summer evenings, cruising along the River Eye on his tricycle, peddling lollipops and ice cream, is a former jazz singer. If jazz, garden mint chocolate, and/or the Cotswolds are your cup of (ground) coffee, hop a plane, train, bus, or tricycle, and make your way to this wonderful, unspoiled village on the River Eye.
