This is not actually one of my favourite
pictures - it's a bit too 'chocolate-box'-y for
me, even though I took it. But the book
that this cottage inspired is a favourite.
This is Mrs. Lee's cottage, and this is where
little Laurie grew up and subsequently -
thankfully - gave us all 'Cider with Rosie'. I
would have taken the picture even without
the cottage, as meadows like this are so
rare these days.
You can go and sit in Laurie Lee's pub, the Woolpack, in Slad, Gloucestershire, practically
next door, and you can visit his simple grave, almost opposite the cottage in the
churchyard, and you can walk any of the many country walks around these quiet hills
and meadows. Or you can write to Gloucestershire County Council and object to their
crass plans to redevelop the beautiful little valley that starts here in this quintessential
corner of England.
It wouldn't be true to say that if the local ale, Uleys, was good enough for Laurie Lee then
it's good enough for me, as I don't think it can hold a candle to some ales in Suffolk, for
instance, or to London Pride or Sam Smiths. But it is still a pleasure to quaff one in the
pub that one of England's favourite writers knew so well, with its view down the valley
and the road, out of Slad, that he took in his next book, As I Walked Out One Midsummer
Morning.
