Gloucestershire (abbreviated 'Gloucs') is a non-metropolitan county in South-West England. Gloucestershire borders Herefordshire to the north west, Wiltshire to the south, Bristol and Somerset to the south west, Worcestershire to the north, Oxfordshire to the east, Warwickshire to the north east, and the Welsh county of Monmouthshire to the west.

Gloucestershire boasts some of the most beautiful countryside in England. The majority of the Cotswolds lies within its boundaries, as does the ancient Forest of Dean and the stunning Wye Valley.

The Battle of Tewkesbury took place on 4th May 1471 and proved to be one of the most decisive battles in the Wars of the Roses. The last battle of the English Civil War took place on 21st March 1646, just one mile north of Stow-on-the-Wold.

Sheep wool was once the main industry in the county, allowing the construction of many of its great buildings, including Gloucester Cathedral which is the burial place of King Edward II, one of just a few monarch graves outside London.
