Oswestry is an ancient market town located in the North of Shropshire close to the English - Welsh Border. Its location as a 'frontier town' has meant the town has seen many civil wars dating back as far as the 11th century. Oswestry was once a strong Welsh settlement and the Castle a frontier outpost.
Today the town is a bustling market town and shopping centre serving North West Shropshire and Mid Wales. Much of its history is still very apparent today with narrow passageways linking streets whose names conjure up images of the past: English Walls, Welsh Walls, The Bailey and the Horse market.
Most of the town centre has been designated a Conservation Area. There are many old timber framed houses, for example Llywd Mansion on Cross Street, the Heritage Centre, the Blackgate, the Fox Inn and the shops along Beatrice Street. Georgian architecture is also well represented, particularly around St Oswald's Church where there are a number of large town houses complete with grand entrance staircases and front doors. It also has a significant Victorian legacy with many of the shop fronts and facades, terraced houses, churches and railway buildings reflecting this period.
Set in the heart of England, Shropshire has earned a reputation as one of the most romantic counties with some of the least congested B-roads to explore. Offering contrasts of scenery, tradition, crafts, atmosphere, myth and heritage, Oswestry is at the centre of these treasures and can be visited and enjoyed all year round. Within easy driving distance are Shrewsbury, Chester, the Welsh Borders, the Marches and Ironbridge, the World Heritage Site.
