A hilly rural
region of central UK
encompassing most of Gloucestershire
plus little bits of Worcestershire
For a rural area it is quite densely populated. That means that unlike Shropshire there are useful things like late night garages, jobs and lock-in pubs.
In the 1700s and 1800s lots of thatched cottages were built out of local yellow stone. American Tourists think that's old. Pah!
