This walk was originally contributed by David Berry, for which many thanks. It has now been reallocated to Sean Meek. Thanks to you too, Sean.

The Warden's Way crosses the Cotswolds from Bourton-on-the-Water to Winchcombe. It is only thirteen miles in length and this walk uses the part with an access from the B4068 and then goes south to Upper Slaughter.

This is the 'handle' of a 'frying-pan' walk. The circular 'pan' bit is a continuation of the Way from Upper to Lower Slaughter and then an anticlockwise lane and footpath return to Upper Slaughter. Footsteps are then retraced along the 'handle'.

The Slaughters are quintessential Cotswold villages, unspoilt by commercialism. There is just one craft- and giftshop located in an old Victorian mill, which has a small museum. The rest is stone cottages, grand houses, the River Eye, a stone bridge, churches, old school... all the ingredients of a picture-book Cotswold village.
