The Manor certainly looks like a place for the upper crust. The waiter was dressed in a suit and we saw some of the guests playing croquet. A look at the menu showed it to be expensive but not as expensive as I thought it would be.
Housing approval in Lower Slaughter is controlled by the Parish Council and any buildings must be kept in period with the rest of the town. Although you can always tell the new ones because their stones are a lighter colour.
Upper Slaughter is a bit larger and has a meeting hall and a hotel. We saw a new title for a gardener in Upper Slaughter - Lawn Garden and Agricultural Mechanic. I think this is an up market name for Jim's Garden Services and I bet that means that they can charge more.

Whereupon all filed in trying to find seats on long benches. Portraits of long dead academics from Queen's watched over the proceedings. Once everyone had found a seat the dons filed in and ...
... become! We found a nice café and enjoyed some afternoon tea. We then headed back to the train station for our trip home - the train only takes a bit over an hour so it made for a great day trip. It is quite exciting to have so many places only a short and affordable train ride away. We have also been to Cambridge recently so will do some comparisons in that blog post! Of course any visit to either Cambridge or Oxford is not complete without a few comments teasing the ...
... was a hospital where seriously injured pilots were treated in very small operating rooms and the accommodation which was cramped and primitive to say the least.
The castle itself was very impressive but conditions precluded taking good photographs.
Dover Castle is visible on a good day from Connaught barracks where I did my best to be a soldier for just over a year. As we were so close it was an ideal opportunity to drive across and check out my memories. ...
