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.

After dinner I went for a loooooong walk around the Christ Church meadow. I did the full loop following the river, which was very pleasant.
I've been thinking that I keep posting pictures and stories in this blog of the people I work with, but I don't think I ever gave a clear introduction as to who these people are. And since today was kind of slow, so today's entry is a bit dull, ...
... We also saw St George’s Hall which is massive and serves as a banquet hall for official dinners and such.
After we finished seeing these rooms we followed the tour route outside the castle again and, on the way to the exit, saw St George’s Chapel from the outside. It looked wonderful but unfortunately wasn’t open to the public.
Having finished our visit, we walked back to the car to find a lovely parking fine – on ...
We returned home from our little adventure. Home, Oxford, the city of dreaming spires felt like home. We maneuvered through streets with familiarity, looked at ancient buildings and felt comfort, entered our little cottage and sighed, "we're home. Somewhere along the way we've found our place in Oxford, at least temporarily. Between dinner with church friends, Saturday coffee dates, copious studies in the libraries, card games and movies late into the nights ...
