  • I walked from The Lowworth Rotor to Upper Slaughter. I think it's just a good idea to experience something a little easier to experience the foot path. I open a wooden fence in some places and go through the ranch. There were a lot of lambs, and it was lovely.

  • From the back of the Old Mill in The Lower Rotor Village, we entered this footpath and headed to Upper Slaughter Village. It starts by opening the wooden door with the plates of Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana. It was just the sheep's parenting season, and i could see a lovely lamb eating grass up close. Don't step on the sheep's lost items here and there. There were no mosquitoes in this season (early May), but there were quite a few insects, such as flies and bees. Open a few fences and follow the footpath to see the famous Rose of the Manor Hotel. It goes out to the public road beside the manor hotel and it arrives at Upper Slaughter village.
