The area is defined by the bedrock of Jurassic limestone that creates a type of grassland habitat rare in the UK and that is quarried for the golden-coloured Cotswold stone. It lies across the boundaries of several English counties; mainly Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire , and parts of Wiltshire , Somerset , Worcestershire and Warwickshire. The hills give their name to the Cotswold local-government district, formed on 1 April , which administers over half of the area.
