No - it doesn't have anything to do with me attacking Anne. We cooled our heals this morning - just having breakfast in the Dial House Hotel, a walk through Bourton-on-the-Water (I discovered that there is also a Bourton-on-the-Hill this afternoon), and having a late morning tea. I took some good photos of Bourton and the pick of these is here …

Instead of going further north to Warwick castle and Royal Leamington Spa, we decided to track south and headed to Sudeley Castle in Winchcombe. Sudeley Castle is the home and burial place of Queen Katherine Parr, Henry VIII's last and only surviving wife. An absolute gem which began as a Roman settlement, grew into a family home and castle, was …
Cooked bacon and eggs for breakfast. Weird middle rasher bacon cooked up to be like toughened corned beef. Strange that the streaky bacon the next day cooked up ok. Visited Studely Castle, home of Queen Katherine Parr the only surviving wife of Henry viii. Interesting drive through the narrow lane ways around Winchcome. Pub dinner tonight. Great local beer .
B&B was ok in the end, smelt damp when I arrive. Took longer route along canal. Lots of ups and downs today and lots of long barrows including hetty peglers tump which you needed a torch for because you went in so far. Climbed tyndale beacon which got narrower and narrower as you got higher, not much space at the top. Weather good again, a bit cooler today ...

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.
