A walk crammed full of beauty and interest, beginning at Bourton-on-the-Water and visiting Lower Slaughter, both places drawing many visitors all through the year. Bourton-on-the-Water, much the larger of the two, has a number of speciality shops of quality, inviting cafes and restaurants and several visitor centres such as Birdland, the Motor Museum, a perfumery and a model village, but the main attraction is its character and beauty, with wonderful Cotswold buildings lining the streets and straddling the flowing water running through its centre. Lower Slaughter has an appeal all of its own, the same River Windrush flowing past lovely stone cottages and houses of exquisite charm and where the old mill in its picturesque setting now houses a museum. The superb St Mary's Church welcomes 10,000 visitors a year and the huge manor dovecote is one of the largest in England.

At WM14, once in the field, if no footpath line across is obvious, follow the fence or hedge all the way round to the opposite corner to find the exit

Wp 14 the path has been moved. Turn into the drive and keep walking to the end and before reaching the field look for a gate on the right

We did this walk on 7th April 2013 and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was nice to see some of the quieter non tourist parts of the town. We suggest the following updates to the route. At the end of 9 - Continue on a steady climb, and heading at 45° to the right. At 10 - The stile has now been replaced by a metal kissing gate. At 12 - The Washbourne Court Hotel is now the The Slaughters Inn. The Old Mill is an excellent place to stop for lunch.
