Constituency profile

West Worcestershire is a large rural constituency bordering Gloucestershire in the south and reaching Birmingham's commuter belt in the north. It is relatively sparsely populated. The biggest centre is Malvern, known for its spring water, an association with the composer Edward Elgar and two public schools, Malvern College and Malvern St James. Other centres include the riverside towns of Pershore and Upton-upon-Severn.

Fruit growing and agriculture are important here while the spa at Great Malvern boosts the tourist trade. Its population is older - more than half are 45 or above. Its workforce includes a good proportion of managers, directors and professionals and relatively few long-term unemployed residents.

The MP Harriet Baldwin won the seat for the Conservatives in 2010 with 50.4% of the vote, the Lib Dems got 37.8%, Labour 6.8% and UKIP 3.9%.
