About

Slaugham is a small village around an attractive green, and its large lake is one of the sources of the River Ouse. The Norman Church has a 13th century tower with a Victorian clock set in its north side. A ruin of interest is Slaugham Place, the former home of Sir Walter Covert, designed by John Thorpe and built sometime before 1579.

A rare and pleasant feature of Slaugham is the absence of overhead wires in the village. Many years ago Colonel Warren paid to have them buried underground. The village also boasts a white-painted telephone kiosk!
