This article is about the village in the Cotswolds. For the Iron age site in Hertfordshire, see The Slad.

Slad is a village in the English county of Gloucestershire. The village is located in the Slad Valley, about 2 miles (3 km) from the town of Stroud and in the Cotswold Hills. It is built principally on the B4070 road from Stroud to Birdlip.

Slad is famous for being the home (and final resting place) of Laurie Lee, who based his book Cider with Rosie on his own life in the village.

The Slad Brook runs along the bottom of the valley. There is a small parish church in the village, and a small traditional pub, the Woolpack.


For the purposes of local government, Slad is within the civil parish of Painswick, the district of Stroud and the county of Gloucestershire.[1]

For parliamentary purposes, Slad is within the UK constituency of Stroud and the European constituency of South West England.[1]
