Worcestershire is another English county, close to the Welsh border.  Between 1974 and 1998 it was amalgamated with its neighbour Herefordshire into the county of Hereford and Worcester.  This suggest either that Never Let Me Go is set at the very end of the 1990s, or that Kathy knows the county by its more traditional name.
