The County of Gloucestershire

Gloucestershire lies at the head of the River Severn estuary on the border with Wales.The River Severn bisects the county from north to south, entering it at Tewkesbury from adjoining Worcestershire. Tidal below Gloucester, the Severn flows through the low-lying, flat and fertile Vale of Gloucester, which varies in width from 5 to 10 miles. To the west lies the high country of the Forest of Dean, and the eastern edge of the vale is well defined by the Cotswold escarpment. Eastward lie the hilly uplands of the Cotswolds, which dip down to the Vale of Oxford. Most of the eastern half of the county is scenic, and an extensive area west and south of Cinderford forms the Dean National Forest Park.

Prehistoric peoples were active in the area, as the numerous tumuli (burial mounds) indicate. Gloucester and Cirencester were Roman towns of note, and there were numerous villas and military camps within the historic county.

The administrative county comprises six districts: Cotswold, Forest of Dean, Stroud, the boroughs of Cheltenham and Tewkesbury, and the city of Gloucester – the county seat. Towns include Cheltenham, Stroud, Cirencester, Newent, Dursley, Stow-on-the-Wold and Wotton-under-Edge.
