Might be an idea to post this in "South West" rather than "West Midlands" :roll:

Gloucestershire is situated at the head of the Severn estuary, and is variously described as being in the south-west midlands, the south-west of England or the Welsh borders, all three of which are true. To the west it is bordered by Monmouthshire (Wales) and the Severn estuary, to the north by Herefordshire (Welsh borders or Marches) and Worcestershire, to the north-east by Warwickshire (Midlands), to the east by Oxfordshire (south Midlands), to the south by Wiltshire and the south-west by Somerset (both south-west England).

Aha!

So that explains why Brummies are always driving down to the Cotswolds to rob the houses then!
