Worcestershire is perhaps the second ‘Garden of England’ after Kent. The Vale of Evesham is renowned for its fertility and the theme of the county’s fruitfulness runs right through this DVD. We experience the marvellous diversity of its scenery from the blossoming Vale to the ancient, impressive Malvern Hills, which dominate the landscape and inspired Elgar to write some of his finest compositions. The historic city of Worcester, with its famous cathedral, is explored in depth. Other places featured include Malvern, Evesham, Bewdley and Droitwich. We seek out stately homes, their history adding to that of the county, with its close links with the English Civil War and the Gunpowder Plot. Local industries, leisure pursuits and geology have not been forgotten.
