From Bourton-on-the-Water we continued north to Stow-on-the-Wold. As you drive back into A429 and head for Stow, after just a few minutes driving, to your left will be a junction into Lower Slaughter village. This is a picturesque village with cottage houses by the river. Our intention was then to drive to Upper Slaughter but we miss a turn and ended up at Lower Swell via B4068. If we had reached Upper Slaughter, we would eventually ended up at Lower Swell as well. From here it was short drive to met up with A429 again where at the traffic junction, Stow would just be straight ahead. Nonetheless, the drive via Lower Slaughter to Lower Swell was nice too.

Stow-on-the-Wold hasn’t much attraction compared to Bourton-on-the-Water and tourist are much lesser compared to Bourton. We spent a little bit of time walking around the town square before leaving for Southampton.
