In June 2011 travelled to the village of Slad (it's not really a village more, a hillside) in the Cotswolds to visit the grave of Laurie Lee. It was really worthwhile. He is buried in the Slad church graveyard. There is a stained glass window in the church depicting the violin he used to play as a busker. In the local pub, the Woolpack, I met other pilgrims and we shared stories about how we came to love the writings of Laurie Lee.
