#6

#7

Great band. I have a t-shirt and every time I wear it around the future father in law he says, “I’m sure that’s a village y’know.”

This has been my Lower Slaughter anecdote, thanks for reading.


#8

Why do you keep searching for them though?


#9

Maybe it’s @Ruffers doing all the searching!?


#10

Not guilty m’lud. As good as that anecdote is I think it’s only worth telling the once.


#11

It’s no Upper Slaughter, that’s for sure.


#12

Couple of very pretty villages they are.

Perhaps even too pretty.


#13

The one where the wee river runs alongside the road and there’s a church, trees, village green, Cotswold stone houses.

It’s just a massive stereotype of an English village isn’t it? Surprised it’s not overrun with coachloads of tourists actually.


#14

Is this not a village name?

Reminds me of the mad bloke I played on Countdown who, before the game (the first one on my second day of filming) asked me if I’d won my games “through luck… or SLAUGHTER”. I lied and said a bit of both - I didn’t want to play mind games, but I’d beaten one opponent by 90 points. Smashed this bloke too and he wrote a poem about our game which is somewhere on YouTube and highly entertaining. (Turned out he was also my uni housemate’s maths teacher back in the day - small world!)


#15

Are you my father in law?!


#16

Yes. I sat on the bench there and ate a sandwich. True bliss.

Certain parts of the Cotswolds are absolutely rammed with tourists, but the Slaughters were relatively quiet when I went!


#17

Play your future father in law at Countdown and see what happens


#18

Hmm, I think I’d get trounced by either of you tbh, it’d just be different degrees of humiliating defeat. You do look a lot less beardy in the selfie threads tbf so I think I’m safe.


#19

just got an email telling me they are playing in october

do you think they’ve ever played in lower slaughter (the village)
