Often claimed to be J. R. R. Tolkien's inspiration for the Shire in his Lord of the Rings trilogy, Worcestershire nestles right at the heart of the English countryside. Bordered by the Cotswolds and the Malvern Hills, the county formed part of the Kingdom of Mercia in the seventh century, and Worcester itself was the site of the final battle of the Civil War between Charles II and Oliver Cromwell. Glimpses of its history can still be found in the county's market towns and villages. Despite its largely rural nature, Worcestershire was also historically a centre of industry, the home of Worcestershire sauce and Royal Porcelain. Jacqueline Cameron demonstrates the contrasts and changes that have made Worcestershire what it is today. Featuring local landmarks and lesser-known sights, Worcestershire Through Time will awaken nostalgic memories in residents, and pique the interest of those less familiar with this historic county.
