SO5765 : A bitter dispute

taken 13 years ago, near to St Michaels, Worcestershire, Great Britain

A bitter dispute.
A bitter dispute.
A welcome return of a roadsign in the 1990s, after the rather unpopular expansion of Worcestershire westward in 1974. Like Rutland Herefordshire was swallowed up by a more populated neighbour, only here Worcester closed the place down like a hostile merger. On regaining independence in 1997, the return of the regalia, and county hall furniture became an issue - Worcestershire had sold it. No love lost across this line. (They also tried to sell a portrait of Stanley Baldwyn, Prime Minister and Worcestershire MP - only at the last minute the Baldwyn family who had loaned the painting found out and retrieved their property.)

View South towards the infamous Raddle Bank, a steep climb on to the plateau to Leysters.
