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.

Another sunny day as we wandered round the Banbury charity shops, ending up in the Reindeer Inn for lunch with Peter and Fran. We went to see the plaster ceiling in the historic oak room, but the ceiling was no longer there, just simple oak beams. However, there was a painting of the room with the ceiling in place. We had seen an ornate plaster ceiling at Anglesey Abbey, and had been told it was a copy of the one in the Reindeer Inn. ...
