Cider with Rosie is an evocative coming-of-age story, bringing to life Laurie Lee’s childhood in the idyllic Cotswold village of Slad, during and after WW1. The new TV adaptation chronicles young Laurie’s escapades, in a world untouched by cars or electricity, and the lessons he learns about love and loss on the way. Explore Slad and visit Laurie Lee’s grave in the churchyard, before embarking on the Laurie Lee Wildlife Way.

This new six-mile circular walk follows 10 poetry posts around the Slad valley, which gave Laurie Lee so much inspiration. No trip to Slad would be complete without a visit to the Woolpack Inn – Lee’s local – with a great reputation for its seasonal fare and local ales.
