Worcestershire is a county in West Midlands at latitude 52°10′15.60″ North, longitude 2°06′32.40″ West.
Worcestershire is a ceremonial county and non-metropolitan county in the West Midlands region of England. The ceremonial county of Worcestershire borders with Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Warwickshire, and West Midlands (county).
The non-metropolitain county of Worcestershire is divided into six districts:
|Malvern Hills ||3||66|
|Wyre Forest ||3||11|
Malvern Hills AONB
Work has begun on the Malvern Hills AONB boundary. Local help needed.
The Hills were designated as an AONB in 1959, so the maps in the designation order showing the boundary will now be out of copyright (Crown Copyright expires 50 years after publication). I've therefore made an FOI request for the original designation order, which I believe will include maps that we should be able to use to complete the boundary.
