Worcestershire school trips
The ancient county of Worcestershire (pronounced Wustershire phonetically) is a considered by most to be a rural county. As with most other rural counties, it is no surprise to hear that agriculture dominates local industry. Hops and fruit crops such as apples are well suited to the local terroir, and while they are still produced in abundance, the local economy is no longer centred around these forms of agricultural. Perhaps the county's most famous export, and one which still enjoys worldwide acclaim, is Worcestershire Sauce.

Stretching from Kidderminster in the north, down to incorporate Evesham and Malvern in the south, Worcestershire is located in the centre of the country. Historically, before politics redrew the boundaries for voting purposes, the county was a different shape and included more urban areas, which are now referred to as the "West Midlands County".
