Removal Company Worcestershire
Worcestershire is a relatively small county in the West Midlands of England. Working clockwise from the north, the county is surrounded by Staffordshire, West Midlands, Warwickshire, Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and Shropshire. Worcester, a city, is the county town; other main settlements include Kidderminster, Redditch, and Bromsgrove. Both the River Severn and the River Avon pass through Worcestershire, which also contains parts of the Malvern Hills and the Cotswolds.
Worcestershire has an extremely long history, which dates back to at least 577 AD when it was the core of the Hwicce tribal kingdom, before the county was later absorbed into the kingdom of Mercia. Worcestershire had a prosperous wool trade during the middle ages, and its various forests were also royal hunting grounds. In 1651, King Charles II’s defeat in the Battle of Worcester effectively ended the English Civil War. In the 1800s, Worcestershire was not known for a single industry; rather, the various towns in the county produced different things. For example, Worcester produced gloves, Kidderminster produced carpets and Droitwich Spa produced salt.
Aside from the products mentioned, Worcestershire historically has also been involved in fruit farming, and this still continues in a reduced capacity in the Vale of Evesham area where orchards exist. Generally, Worcestershire today consists of several relatively affluent towns which all retain a steady and sustainable amount of business and trade. GTech, the home appliance company, has its head office in the county, as does GKN, a multinational automotive and aerospace parts company.

Worcestershire properties often have period features, large gardens and are in idyllic locations, though houses with all these features will come at a premium. The average property price for the county is £264,966 according to Zoopla. In Worcester, there are plenty of attractive regency townhouses as well as well-design modern developments, all of which benefit from the city’s strong transport links. The spa towns of Droitwich and Malvern both can boast Victorian architecture and generally large properties. Kidderminster is ideally placed for a commute to Birmingham, being situated only 27 kilometres away.
Moving house Demographics
Worcestershire’s population is estimated to be 588,400, meaning it is the seventh least populous county in England. 92.4% of the population are White British; this was a continuation of a trend of increasing numbers of migrants, but still reflects a lesser extent of ethnic diversity in Worcestershire compared to the country as a whole. The county has a generally older age structure than the rest of the West Midlands region and England overall. 77% of the population identity as Christian.
Worcestershire has a range of attractions. For history buffs, there is Worcester Cathedral, The Commandery which details the part that the county played in the English Civil War, and the Forge Mill Needle Museum which offers a perspective into Worcestershire’s industrial past. The Droitwich Salt Fest and Worcester Music Festival are both very popular events and run annually. Worcester also has an impressive array of pubs and restaurants; don’t miss The Fleece Inn, now managed by the National Trust, which has been serving local ales since 1848.
