Laurie Lee county...


Laurence Edward Alan "Laurie" Lee, MBE (June 26 1914 – May 13, 1997) was an English poet, novelist, and screenwriter, raised in the village of Slad, Gloucestershire. His most famous work was an autobiographical trilogy which consisted of Cider with Rosie (1959), As I Walked Out One Midsummer Morning (1969) and A Moment of War (1991).


The first volume recounts his childhood in the Slad Valley. The second deals with his leaving home for London and his first visit to Spain in 1935, and the third with his return to Spain in December 1937 to join the Republican International Brigades.


Holy Trinity Church in the village of Slad


The Holy Trinity Church in Slad is a small Country Church made famous by Laurie Lee's book "Cider with Rosie" - he now lies in the churchyard and this has become a place of pilgrimage for many admirers of his writings.


The Church attracts many visitors and remains the spritual focus of the village community with regular Sunday worship.
