Many of Turner's finest photographs were made in Worcestershire in the early 1850s and must rank as some of the very first photographs made here. Today Bredicot remains a small rural hamlet surrounded by farmland and open countryside. It is a remarkable survival considering its location close to the M5 and barely four miles from the centre of Worcester. The size and layout of Bredicot is largely unaltered from the time of Turner's photographs, yet the actual locations of some of the scenes in and around the farmyard of Bredicot Court have changed almost beyond recognition reflecting the contrast in rural life between the 19th and 21st centuries.
