"I have always enjoyed the picturesque views / architecture of the Worcestershire country side / villages. Whenever i travel through the county to visit Gloucestershire i always find myself admiring the scenary and it makes me feel relaxed. My aim in respect to this project would be to represent the Worcestershire county and further explore Worcestershire whilst developing my abilities and portray the counties beauty within the "2010 What is England?" project."
